Supertankers entering POLB use ABB Marine Software

Supertankers entering the Port of Long Beach (POLB) will use ABB’s marine software to produce real-time data of the keel-to-seabed clearance. Sensors ? tted to Tesoro vessels will send information to a Portable

Surveyor Box (PSB), carried by the pilot, which will verify their route to the dock. In this speci? c case, the system is used to continuously validate (and improve) pre-calculated motions from the online decision support system PROTIDE, which is used to calculate safe transit time windows for large oil tankers to en- ter the port. The information provided by the PSB validates the PROTIDE outcome, which enables deeper draft ships to enter the port safely. This means that fewer tankers need to lighten their load to enter the

NEW PRODUCTS harbor or to wait for the appropriate time window.
