Wärtsilä has launched its Expert Insight predictive maintenance product. This is a digital tool that enables customer support to be delivered by Wärtsilä Expertise Centres to ensure long-term accurate insight for their predictive maintenance strategies.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} Wärtsilä Expert Insight is a solution that leverages artificial intelligence (AI) and advanced diagnostics to monitor equipment and systems in real-time. When anomalous behaviour is detected, it is flagged to specialists at Wärtsilä Expertise Centres, allowing them to support the customer proactively with an appropriate resolution to the issue.

The product, which is available in combination with a Wärtsilä Lifecycle Solutions agreement, combines AI, advanced diagnostics, and Wärtsilä’s expertise to enhance the safety, reliability and efficiency of the equipment and/or systems installed. Wärtsilä Expert Insight represents an important next step within the company’s ongoing development work in honing its predictive maintenance capabilities.

“Finding ways to serve the customer better is a constant priority and central to Wärtsilä’s product development philosophy. It’s at the heart of our Smart Technology approach to raising efficiency, safety, and performance levels, and the Expert Insight innovation supports this philosophy totally. It greatly improves the reliability of equipment and systems, and it gives us added ability to respond far more proactively throughout the lifecycle of the customer’s asset,” said Frank Velthuis, director digital product development, Wärtsilä.

Wärtsilä Expert Insight promotes closer collaboration between Wärtsilä’s Expertise Centres and the customers’ technical personnel, which in turn forms the basis for better asset management decisions. This is expected to take predictive maintenance to a new level. By identifying and highlighting potential issues proactively, asset availability is greatly enhanced, as is the reliability and safety of the equipment or system.

  • Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy takes delivery of Wärtsilä Cloud Simulation solution

    Wärtsilä has successfully delivered its brand-new Cloud Simulation solution to Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy. Comprising a combination of cloud-based solutions, including navigational, engine room and liquid cargo handling simulators, Wärtsilä is the first company to offer class-approved cloud-based simulation technology to the maritime industry.

    The online installation was deployed in early July, allowing the Academy to continue providing its training despite ongoing social distancing and travel restrictions.

    Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy is a maritime training provider in the region, which is now powered by Wärtsilä Voyage technology. The addition of the online installations of NTPro and TechSim will broaden the simulation-based training offering available at the Academy.

    Cloud Simulation technology takes simulation beyond the boundaries of the physical classroom, to provide location and device independence, and to deliver simulation-based training wherever, whenever, and however it is needed by the user.

    Remote access to training allows students and instructors to reach various Wärtsilä Voyage simulation models on their personal devices, away from the classroom and without the need for specific Wärtsilä software. Both the TechSim and NTPRO platforms in the cloud provide a classroom configuration with trainer and multiple student stations for familiar instructor-led training.

    “We are excited to be at the leading edge of this technology in the maritime industry and enable trainees to acquire a wide range of navigational and engineering skills, without the need to physically attend the training centre. By having remote access to the simulation library and any classroom-based exercise, instructors can easily manage the application and deliver the training,” commented Torsten Büssow, director, Wärtsilä Voyage.

    "We are very pleased to have this next-generation of blended-learning solutions delivered by Wärtsilä Voyage. The bespoke training that this solution allows to deliver will undeniably enhance the training experience of our students. The Wärtsilä Voyage distance learning application will surely open up many new training opportunities inside and outside the physical classroom”, said Capt. Clive Hotham, head of Marine Short Courses and Simulator, Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy.
