ClassNK and Daihatsu work to extend condition based monitoring

ClassNK is to take part in a joint research project with Daihatsu Diesel to test the extensibility of its condition based monitoring and automatic diagnostic system 'ClassNK CMAXS LC-A', with a view to incorporating functionality into the system to cover auxiliary diesel engines manufactured by Daihatsu Diesel.

ClassNK says that, although there has been a significant amount of research into condition based monitoring systems for main diesel engines, there is limited research that investigates extending their functionality to auxiliary equipment in the engine room.

The class society believes that there is a growing need for auxiliary equipment, such as auxiliary diesel engines, to be covered by condition based monitoring systems, largely due to a lack of seafarers experienced enough to interpret the vast amount of sensor data now available on vessels.

The aim of this joint project is to test the extensibility of 'ClassNK CMAXS LC-A', a cloud-based machinery maintenance system that uses analysis software to analyse sensor data obtained in the engine room for automatic condition diagnoses and to detect any early signs of damage to auxiliary equipment.

The goal is for the system to be able to show the condition of a wide variety of equipment in real-time and, through the optimisation of scheduled overhaul intervals, improve lifecycle costs and enhance the safety of ship operations.

The project is scheduled to continue until October 2015.
