Guardian Asset Protection

Prevent vessel damage to offshore wind farms and undersea cables

Proactive Protection

Offshore energy sources and undersea cables are often at a risk of damage due to marine activity. Sea surface installations such as offshore wind farms, wave and tidal power structures can be struck by vessels. Ships can accidentally anchor in cable zones or drag anchors in rough weather conditions.

Guardian Asset Protection helps energy companies protect their underwater power cables and sea surface installations from accidental damage. After being struck by anchors twice earlier, New York Power Authority uses Guardian:protect to warn marine traffic of their cable zone in the Long Island Sound.

Guardian  marks surface installations or undersea cables using virtual aids to navigation or virtual buoys. Vessels see these assets on their navigation systems and operate safely around them. Vessel behavior is monitored by Guardian for potential collisions or anchoring and in case of risk, automated messages are sent directly to the vessels on their navigation systems to take corrective action.

What is Guardian?

Guardian from Vesper Marine is a 24/7 asset protection system that prevents vessel collisions with sea surface installations or cable damage due to ship anchors. It gives vessels visibility of your marine assets or cables via their electronic navigation systems, monitors their live positions and evaluates their activity. If they present a collision risk to your assets or demonstrate anchoring behavior, Guardian proactively sends both the vessel and you an alert. The alert goes directly to the electronic navigation system of the vessels so they can take corrective action.
