Videotec’s Maximus MMX cameras employed onboard NOC Tankers, Singapore


The NOC fleet counts about ten oil products tankers sailing in the Singapore area. These vessels carry highly flammable fuel oil waste for proper recycling or disposal treatment. The client needed to equip three vessels of the fleet with a reliable onboard video surveillance system that was explosion-proof certificated given the presence of an explosive atmosphere. After various researches, the client decided to employ the MAXIMUS MMX stainless steel cameras for the video surveillance on board three NOC ships.

The client has been satisfied with the MMX cameras as they are quick to install, easy to use, and there is no downtime for video footage, while performance and image quality are outstanding. This camera is certified ATEX/IECEx (Exd IIB, Ext IIIC) and UL Hazardous Location for America and Canada (Class I, Zone 1, Class I, Div. 2 and Class II, Zone 21, Class II Div 2).

Its lightweight and compact size makes it easy to handle and mount. Moreover, the integrated bracket allows adapting the camera mounting to any surface, either wall, ceiling, or parapet, according to the application need. Various cabling options are available to reduce assembly time and cost.

Whether the type of area is safe or hazardous, Videotec can respond to all of these changing and challenging demands with a comprehensive range of equipment with the most advanced, well-researched technical features for security systems that operate in oil and gas and offshore/onshore marine industries.
