What is the Smart Ship to Coltraco Ultrasonics?

Through ongoing technology advancements, ship owners can protect their crew, vessels and cargo with smart Safeship® technologies. We can better achieve the Smart Ship, implement existing regulations, and strengthen new ones, by introducing more sensor monitoring technologies which will be linked by IoT. The application of the IoT and ultrasound allows the Smart Ship to be achieved here and now whilst research and development presents future opportunities. Continuous monitoring solutions benefit the crew: by being easy to operate, quick, accurate and better than traditional monitoring techniques, means the likelihood of their use and thus protection is much higher. Whilst regulations can sometimes be said to drive up costs in the short term, their longer-term impact is designed to save time, costs and improve the industry. Owners, managers and operators in particular must strive towards the Safeship®: holistic protection of their fleet.

The Smart Ship can be a Safe Ship by implementing new technology such as that developed by Coltraco Ultrasonics. The neglect of continuous monitoring of the fundamental protection provided by the gaseous extinguishing systems and watertight integrity imperils the lives of ship’s crews and occupants and at the risk of crippling financial and reputational loss to the tanker owner. Continuously monitoring gaseous extinguishing systems and watertight integrity with the aid of IoT raises awareness of the safety critical need to implement and exceed regulations, through continuous inspection.

Coltraco Ultrasonics understand that through the developments and current emphasis on IoT we are closer to reaching the Smart Ship which is bringing greater awareness for the shipping industry to improve. Due to this, future regulations could be strengthened by the inclusion of constant monitoring and IoT developments to allow for the better implementation of the Smart Ship which will be a Safe Ship. IoT and big data offer great benefits to enable implementation and potential change in the regulations.


CEO Message

Integrity and Science Key to Our Culture of Performance

Dear Coltraco Customers, Strategic Partners and Distributors,

Integrity is our defining value. Performance is its consequence. We understand that our customers have choices, and how we perform determines whether customers choose us. Coltraco’s Code of Ethics does not merely require compliance with laws. It embodies a Commitment to positive behaviours that build trust, promote respect, operate with distinction, with courtesy and global levels of performance, demonstrating our integrity and delivering customer performance.

We honour our commitments, communicate transparently, and act with honour. Ethics are the foundation of our performance culture and our science-based approach. We lead in specific technologies delivering the watertight integrity monitoring of marine structures and the monitoring of fixed liquefied gaseous fire extinguishing systems and the room integrity of protected space to ensure agent hold-times post-installation. We show this by our understanding of the science in them and the mathematics that explain them.

I would like to thank you for your business and for the relationships with our Customers, Strategic Partners, Distributors and ODAs who we value so highly.
