Bainbridge Island, WA – Krill Systems Inc., leader in advanced Vessel Fuel Measurement and Monitoring Systems (VFMMS), is pleased to announce successful installation and sea trial of two systems on-board the NOAA research vessels Henry B. Bigelow and Pisces.

NOAA Ship Henry B. Bigelow and NOAA Ship Pisces represent the first two fittings of a multiple vessel NOAA contract awarded in a competitive bid, on an unrestricted basis, to Krill Systems to implement VFMMS (Vessel Fuel Measuring and Management Systems) within their fleet.

NOAA Ship Pisces

The Bigelow and the Pisces are 208’ LOA NOAA fisheries survey vesselsoperating as part of the NOAA Atlantic Fleet. They are both actively engaged in research missions. Propulsion in both vessels is provided by Integrated Diesel Electric 24-Pulse DC SCR Drive Systems, each using two 1,125kW

Propulsion DC Motors on a common shaft, powered by CAT 3512 and CAT 3508 Series Diesel Generators delivering 3,017hp at 134 max rpm.

NOAA Fisheries Survey Vessels (FSV) are among the most technologically advanced in the world and support the NOAA Fisheries Service’s mission. NOAA Fisheries is responsible for the management, conservation and protection of living marine resources within the United States Exclusive Economic Zone. NOAA Fisheries also plays a supportive and advisory role in the management of living marine resources in coastal areas under state jurisdiction; provides scientific and policy leadership in the international arena, and implements international conservation and management measures as appropriate.

Installation of the Krill VFMMS system on Pisces took place in Pascagoula, MS in February 2012. Installation on Henry B. Bigelow took place the following month, in March. Sea-trials were subsequently conducted on both vessels.

Krill Systems uses Microsoft SQL server database technology to record all sensor data with 2-second resolution and storage capacity of at least one year with unlimited roll-over capacity (ROC). Any communication system including Cellular or Satellite internet access, supporting standard SMTP email protocols, may be used to transmit customizable reports and sensor data menus, in Excel format, to any number of operators, anywhere. There are no monthly fees for this service.

Phase Three: Sea Trial and Final Check

16 05 2012

Krill Systems Scope of Work (KSOW) involves three phases. Phase Three involves the sea trial with all the operators onboard the vessel. During this process we review the systems together, with all operators, as Krill gathers the information and brings that data into report form for ship operations. Trusting the communication between the collection and display graphics is key to the sea trial. Hands on experience is emphasized with both onboard crew & corporate operations. Krill welcomes open communication and dialogue during each phase of the scope of work, and meeting the needs of our customers.

Krill Systems Scope of Work – Phase Two: The Ship Check

8 05 2012

Krill Systems Scope of Work (KSOW) involves three phases. Phase Two involves the ship check where collaboration and more discussion takes place with all participating parties: vessel engineers, port engineers, captains, Krill engineering staff, vessel installation crew and vendors including the fuel meter manufacturer. Cooperative planning and engagement with our clients and participating parties involves diligent communication and discussion using graphical block diagrams during the ship check review process. The ship engine room and wheel house are areas for review of placement of the software displays; crew members’ consideration are noted during the installation process. The ship check usually takes 2 – 2.5 hrs and after expectations have been reviewed, the refinement of diagrams with new action items are created to the satisfaction of our partners.
