Data collection and monitoring platform for engines launched

Winterthur Gas & Diesel (WinGD) and partner Enamor Ltd of Gdynia, Poland, have jointly launched a new data collection and monitoring (DCM) platform, developed under a collaboration agreement between the companies signed earlier this year.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}This first version of the DCM hardware, with monitoring software, has been tailored to work with WinGD’s engine and ship-specific software, the companies said, including the diagnostic software WinGD is currently developing with Propulsion Analytics of Piraeus, Greece.

“The collaboration with Enamor is the next step in our plan to lead innovation in the field of shipping digitalisation,” said Dominik Schneiter, vice president of research & development at WinGD.

“The DCM platform will provide engine owners and operators with an advanced tool aboard ships that collects, stores, visualises and post-processes all engine data, as well as relevant ship information and other machinery data.”

“This comprehensive fund of data will be the foundation of our digital solution portfolio, enabling value-adding analyses and remote support. It is the starting point of a game-changing product that will provide optimum customer value.”

The onboard DCM platform will also transmit its data to shore to be analysed by the ship owner and by WinGD to support performance optimisation.

“The WinGD DCM platform is the gateway to engine, ship and ship machinery data, creating an IoT (Internet of Things) network with most of the analytics done on the edge, i.e. on the vessel,” added Mr Schneiter.

“This platform will allow us to fully leverage the capabilities of the WinGD Engine Diagnostic System (EDS) developed with Propulsion Analytics and provide maximum benefits for our customers. The combination of EDS and DCM enables WinGD to offer not only insights into operational parameters of vessel, main engine and other vital ship systems but also analytical tools for the ship’s crew and personnel ashore.”

“It will also offer WinGD, as an engine developer, key insights of the sort that have not been available thus far for the further improvement of our products and services.”{/mprestriction}
