ABB expands Remote Diagnostic Service

ABB’s new RDS software ABB’s new RDS software

ABB is expanding its vessel maintenance technology capabilities with an upgrade to its Remote Diagnostic Service (RDS) platform, backed by its Integrated Operation Centres in Asia, Europe and the USA.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The upgraded software functionalities of the new RDS will see ABB improve its proactive monitoring of data from shipboard systems, as well as its predictive analytics capabilities.

ABB is looking to assist the development of the shore side operations of shipping companies by giving them the opportunity to replicate ABB’s Integrated Operations Centres in their own Operational Centres, as the latest version of the RDS software allows shipping companies to deploy their own analytics or those from a third party, where applicable.

ABB has also further developed its dedicated hardware for the monitoring of large and small rotating machinery with tighter integration to the RDS software, and is working to optimise data transfers between ship and shore to deal with limited connectivity environments.

“Through our Integrated Operations Solutions and Centres we aim to be connected to 3,000 vessels by 2020,” said Kenneth Nakken, vice president digital services, at ABB’s Marine & Ports business.

“We develop all our digital solutions with the customer in mind and we believe our new Predict service will strengthen the shore side operations of all involved.”{/mprestriction}
