High Speed Transfers goes global with BareFLEET, as the firm commits to monitoring and reporting best practice proven across European operations.

High Speed Transfers (HST), a Crew Transfer Vessel (CTV) operator supporting the offshore wind energy and oil and gas industries, is adopting BareFLEET, Reygar’s advanced remote monitoring system, across the entirety of its fleet as the business looks to replicate its European successes in the U.S. and Taiwanese markets.

Offshore energy is an increasingly global sector, and leading vessel operators investing early in a best practice approach to remote monitoring and reporting are creating a strong base from which to expand their operations into new growth markets.

BareFLEET affords CTV operators numerous operational and commercial benefits. By automatically recording and drawing critical vessel data into a single portal, the system removes the opportunity for human error and significantly reduces reporting time. BareFLEET gives operators full visibility over fleet activity, health and performance, monitoring the status of the engine, vessel motion and navigation - adding demonstrable value for clients.

Meeting unique operational requirements in the U.S.
HST has a partnership in place with Boston Line & Services in the U.S., which will see the business deliver crew transfer and logistical support to East Coast offshore wind farms and the wider offshore energy sector. In U.S. waters, BareFLEET will make it straightforward for the business to monitor fuel consumption data, and may in future also be used to log Nitrogen Oxide emissions using specialist sensors, in order to meet market-specific requirements such as EPA Tier 4.

Setting a benchmark for safe, cost-effective operations in Taiwan
HST also have an agreement in place in Taiwan, with Dong Fang Offshore (DFO) covering three CTVs and the roll-out of a training programme for local crews.

Chris Huxley-Reynard, Managing Director, Reygar, concluded: “We are proud to support the expansion of HST into the global offshore energy market, and in turn helping to ensure that the highest operational standards can be maintained in the USA and Taiwan. HST is demonstrating how BareFLEET’s versatility and cost-effectiveness lends itself to a growing modern fleet of next-generation CTVs.”
