Cargo monitoring system onboard a tanker

Comprehensive cargo and ballast tank monitoring to ensure vessel stability and safety

Cargo monitoring systems (CMS) on marine vessels provide alarm monitoring and data readings for liquid level, pressure and temperature in each cargo tank, plus each ballast tank. The reliability of data from these systems is critical for the operation, safety and structural integrity of the vessel, particularly throughout all loading and discharging processes. The main function is to maintain stability and load compensation during these operations. Any malfunction of the cargo monitoring system can delay and prevent cargo operations, which could result in increased port charges and docking schedules.
