Alphatron Marine is proud to announce the introduction of the AlphaHeight during the upcoming Europort exhibition. The altitude measurement system consists of a number of sensors on the ship that measures the distances to the bottom of the bridge and the height of the steering house and mast(s) on a ship, contributing to the increasing safety of inland navigation.
On the bow of the vessel the sensor will vertically measure the distance to the bottom of the bridge and on the aft of the vessel sensors will measure the height of the wheelhouse and the mast. Furthermore, there are pressure sensors onboard which measure if a vessel is loaded on a certain point on the vessel. It also measures how the ship lays in the water without measuring the depth of the ship itself. The watering up of water by wind and or countercurrent does not affect the measurement.
The trusted 5-inch display shows the measured value and gives an acoustic and visual alarm if there is too little room left for passing the bridge. The skipper then has the time for the ship to respond to ensure a safe passage. Depending on the shipping speed and position of the steering house, this time may be 15 or more seconds for conventional inland waterway vessels.

Reverse order when it comes to fire safety?
16 juin 2022 - The number of fires on board large ships has increased strongly in recent years, according to the annual AGCS Safety & Shipping Review by maritime insurer Allianz. Freight-related fires are on the rise; the average has been one fire in less than two weeks for years. The number of fires or explosions on all types of vessels that resulted in total losses rose to ten in 2020, the highest number in four years.En savoir plus
JRC’s Radar Wave Analysis function
11 février 2021 - Multiple ships have lost about 2000 containers in heavy weather conditions over the last months. Losing containers at sea has a major impact on the ocean environment and is a huge cost expense for shipping companies. Heavy rolling and pitching of the ship is one of the causes that the containers lose their stability and start falling overboard. JRC’s navigational radar JMR-7200/9200 has the Wave Analysis function that is easily available by a software upgrade.En savoir plus
