Working with the Hellenic Navy on the Ouranos Refit

We have recently been working with the Hellenic Navy in Greece on the refit of their Ouranos vessel. The Ouranos is a small coastal tanker, built in 1977 at the Salamis shipyards, alongside its sister ship, the Hyperion, whose main task is to supply and replenish other vessels and naval bases of the Hellenic Navy with fuel and drinking water.

The refit of the 67.6m and 2,100 ton vessel consisted of our VPM+ central acquisition unit with its integral 7” touchscreen display, connected via an ethernet link to a remote larger touchscreen display configured to provide full tank data in both bargraph and tabular format. The VPM+ is particularly suited for larger vessels or systems where a more comprehensive display is required.

Our APT1000 submersible sensor was installed in each of the twelve oil cargo tanks and connected back to the VPM+ acquisition unit via RFM4 termination modules on a single RS485 data bus. This ensured that both liquid level and the temperature could be measured.

The VPM+ is fully pre-configured by us before despatch, meaning the Hellenic Navy simply needed to install the unit and power it up upon delivery, and this, plus the minimal cabling required, were key considerations in them selecting the PSM system for the refit.
