Gain better insight into how a floating dock behaves. To extrapolate the critical data, the dock is equipped with various types of sensors that measure the inclination of the dry dock in the water, the temperature of measured components, and the filling level in the ballast tanks. The docks are also equipped with sensors that can detect leaks. Digitread is using the Siemens MindSphere IoT platform to develop this solution. MindSphere acts as an operating system for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and can collect data from all types of sensors.


Supported Industries:

  • Marine


Integration between machine and environmental data with connectivity using Siemens components. The solution involves one Simatic S7 1200, and two Simatic ET 200SP’s to connect over 60 analog and digital industrial sensors.

Process Impact

Increases visibility to floating dock operating conditions allowing improved uptime, reliability and productivity.

Business Opportunities

  • Drive ROI through improved uptime and reliability of floating dock facilities.
  • Reduce manual efforts monitoring dock water levels.
  • Increase safety of dry dock environment.
  • Track performance data over time, enabling intelligent decision making.
