in2Dredging Presents the EPR Tool

Most projects in the dredging and maritime industries collect vast amounts of data from their equipment’s sophisticated onboard systems.

But is this data, despite being so easily acquired, being used effectively?

Inconsistent or incomplete data reviews can lead to expensive false positive results, yet accurately reviewing this data can be labor intensive, resulting in escalating costs as more expensive people are required on site.

For Chevron’s Wheatstone project, the contractor TAMS commissioned in2Dredging (i2D) to develop a tool for quickly and reliably reviewing equipment data.

The tailor made tool provided daily equipment data reviews and constructive feedback on performance and compliancy to the site team in a matter of minutes.

The majority of stakeholders in our industry collect data for a variety of reasons,” TAMS project manager for the Wheatstone dredging project, Maarten Terwal said. “It doesn’t matter whether you’re a contractor, client or regulator, anyone can have access to, and share equipment data. It’s what you do with that data that makes a difference.”

Thanks to the success of the tool on the Wheatstone project, this tool has recently been redeveloped into a more generic piece of software, which can quickly and easily be customized for any project.

The new tool, called Equipment Performance Review (EPR v2.1), can:

  • Review ASCII data files from any equipment;
  • Check and flag predefined data conditions;
  • Generate a dashboard of easy to comprehend graphs on the equipment’s performance.

According to in2Dredging, the EPR is a fast and simple to use data viewing and manipulation tool. The tool has been developed to be used by all stakeholders in the dredging industry, including regulators, contractors and clients.

3rd International Congress Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews ( holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
