Wärtsilä extends predictive maintenance solution to support 2-stroke engines

Wärtsilä’s digital predictive maintenance product, Expert Insight, has been extended to support 2-stroke engines.

Expert Insight uses artificial intelligence (AI) techniques and rule-based advanced diagnostics to identify potential issues in asset operating data. Wärtsilä’s experts are then able to provide actionable advice proactively to the customer. This facilitates a predictive maintenance strategy, whereby the health and efficiency of the equipment form the basis of maintenance activities.

Expert Insight is available in combination with Wärtsilä’s Lifecycle Solutions offering. It is delivered through Wärtsilä Expertise Centres around the world.

Wärtsilä is also releasing a minimum viable product (MVP) for scrubbers to provide continuous fleet-wide insight into vessel compliance and scrubber utilisation.

Originally launched in November 2019 for 4-stroke engines, Expert Insight is now being extended to include both 2-stroke engines and scrubbers. Wärtsilä’s Lifecycle Solutions offering will be able to support the customer with a broader scope.

“The launch of Expert Insight last year took predictive maintenance to the next level, allowing us to detect a greater percentage of issues than previously, and at an even earlier stage. This enables the experts in our Expertise Centres to deliver fast and proactive advice to customers, thus increasing operational uptime,” said Frank Velthuis, director digital product development, Wärtsilä.

The Expert Insight scrubbers MVP provides customers operating scrubbers with valuable compliance information, including automated non-compliance incident reporting, scrubber usage statistics, and a live compliance map. The predictive maintenance features for scrubbers will be released at a later stage.

Wärtsilä’s Lifecycle Solutions offering is designed to go beyond basic maintenance and operation by delivering guaranteed performance based on mutually agreed target levels. Having both 2- and 4-stroke engines, as well as scrubbers supported by Expert Insight adds further value to the concept.

  • 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.
