Motion Reporter from OptiLift

Innovative and unique technology to dramatically increase the up-time of lifting operations in harsh environments.

Motion reporterTraditionally decisions about lifting in harsh weather are based on significant wave height but OptiLift’s Motion Reporter collects real-time vessel movements which identify the actual wave height on deck which often varies by several metres on different parts of the vessel.

Having possession of this important data means crews can make informed decisions about safely continuing lifting operations and avoiding unnecessary costly delays.

The Motion Reporter is a unique piece of technology that works using a laser and camera that automatically generate 3D models of supply vessels without any sensors or instrumentation required to be on the vessel itself.
