Hull Strain Monitoring


The HULLMOS system can measure stresses caused by waves, loading condition motion and ice. It operates as a running recorder through which the shipowners can follow the handling of the ship and so prolong the operational lifetime of the ship. It enables the crew to operate the vessel more cautiously, especially on large vessels where it is impossible to feel the hull strain by human sense.

Implementation of the system can enable lighter constructions and can reduce insurance costs. Statistical data provided by the system is useful for ship designers, shipyards, shipping companies and ship classification societies. The data gathered can be used for estimating the fatigue life of the hull of the vessel and designing new vessels. Provided data can also be used for planning ship maintenance, repairs and classifications.

Following the increase of bulk carrier casualties, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) has recommended that hull stress monitoring devices should be fitted to all bulkers over 20.000 dwt. Similar recommendations are expected also for other types of ships either as a response to end users request or according to the recommendations of the classification societies.
