OSEAN 360 aims to serve the Offshore (Energy & Maritime) entire spectrum of the industry, locally and regionally by providing quality, innovative, intelligent and state of the art engineering & scientific solutions or services.

Propulsion Dynamics develops and maintains state-of-the-art Performance Mathematical Models and became the first company to offer outsourcing of Hull and Propeller Performance Analysis as a turnkey service utilizing manually or automatically collected Vessel Performance Monitoring System data. The CASPER Service continues to pioneer through hydrodynamic analyzing of performance figures; the analysis yields a rating system for hull and propeller condition for improving fleet performance.

CASPER (Computer Assisted Ship & Propeller Performance) is a service to analyze a vessel’s hull and propeller performance and relate this to actual Fuel Oil Consumption, by analysing data alone. The CASPER algorithm does not require additional gauges, fittings nor a monitoring system installed.

 Three reasons that make this a unique and robust service:
     - The speed through water is calculated from propeller revolutions, power delivered to the propeller and propeller design whereas onboard speed logs and GPS are be that accurate.
     - Full hydrodynamic correction of heavy sea states, whereas most contemporary performance monitoring systems are unable to cater for weathering.
     - Algorithms for the influence of hull and propeller roughness and fouling on speed loss and increased bunker costs.

Prisma Electronics provides technology-based solutions for businesses and organizations. Through its R&D and technical divisions Prisma Electronics designs, develops, and manufactures a wide array of IT, smart-grid and wireless-based systems, and integrated electronic components. Prisma Electronics is proud to offer commercial and custom solutions to its clients worldwide.

LAROS is an innovative system that enables remote monitoring and analysis of vessels operational parameters. It is a versatile tool that provides diagnosis, prognosis and early warning by collecting and transmitting data to the operations’ center anywhere in the world in real time. In this manner the vessel’s yields are increased, while the safety and efficiency of operation is significantly improved.

Many international shipping companies around the world have adopted LAROS seeking increased levels of operation, environmental protection and dynamic-preventive maintenance and coordination between crew and administration.
