AeroScout announced that COTEMAR, S.A. de C.V., is using AeroScout’s real-time location system (RTLS) to enhance worker safety on its four offshore housing platforms.
The AeroScout Worker Safety solution used by COTEMAR includes AeroScout MobileView software and Wi-Fi RFID tags attached to a lanyard that must be worn by every staff member, guest and visitor during their stay at one of the facilities.
The four housing platforms, nicknamed ‘flotels’ (or floating hotels), each provide living quarters for about 150 crew and service personnel and 500 guests who work on or support nearby, offshore oil and gas platforms.
The AeroScout worker safety solution tracks the location of everyone who comes onboard or leaves one of the floating hotels, improving security and operational efficiency. This information also provides officers of each vessel with critical information in case of an emergency.
The solution allows personnel to come and go from the platforms without having to wait in long lines to check in or check out, and provides information about who is onboard and who is not at any given moment.
