Vessel Management System (BIMAC)

Vessel management system for every vessel type

Over the past years, data acquisition on board the various types of vessels is becoming increasingly important. Being a key supplier to the leading dredging & offshore companies, our BIMAC system has already been data-intensive, growing along with the increased IO counts on board these vessels. With the current focus on further data processing, BIMAC plays a central role in the data-intensive vessels of the future. BIMAC includes an alarm & monitoring system that is modular and adaptable to your use and needs. 

The backbone for Bakker’s automation solutions

BIMAC is the platform on which various Bakker Sliedrecht’s automation solutions are hosted, such as our Common Diesel Generator protection system (CDG). CDG enables DP-approved closed ring operation of the power plant, with the first DNV-GL approval for dual fuel (also LNG) application. Combined with our Power Management solution, a robust power plant operation is ensured, with advanced power limitation and all the regular functions such as black-out recovery.

A completely different application is our Dredge Profile Computer (DPC), which brings the cutter dredger to a higher level of automation by translating the desired cut profile to all the required operations of the dredger. Optimizing swing movement without exceeding machine limits, optimizing flow without manual intervention, are all arranged by the DPC control. The operator can monitor the process carefully via our HMI, with the option to manually intervene when desired.

Over 20 years of ongoing development

Over the years, BIMAC’s capabilities have grown with the requirements of the maritime industry, now controlling a wide range of vessel types and sizes. From fast surface vessels to inland shipping; from DP2 offshore service vessels to DP3 crane vessels and from hopper dredgers to the largest cutter dredgers ever built. BIMAC has all the required features to function as the heart of any ship type.

Adapting to customer’s preferences 

The experience of many different system configurations accumulated in the library of component typicals offers a solution for the consistent control of a wide range of components on board such as circuit breakers, valves, generators, and motors. By combining these typicals, any type of system can be configured and controlled in a consistent manner.

Based on our in-house developed PC software, utilizing the full potential of the currently available hardware, we offer our redundant AMS functionality. For interaction with devices in the field, there is a wide range of industrial communication protocols available. For hard-wired interfacing and vessel system control, a PLC layer is integrated with the BIMAC system. Adapting to our customer's preferences we support the major PLC brands in the industry, such as Bachmann, Allen Bradley, Siemens, and Wago.
