Upgrades and features
The corrective maintenance module provides support when failures occur. The intelligent system guides you intuitively through the support tools. Benefits of the module include fault diagnosis, a direct link to the integrated online documentation, on-board personnel having access to in-depth, detailed failure analysis support when failures occur, detailed definition of remedial actions, and more.
The maintenance schedule for MTU engines is based on the actual load profile. Using the Digital Maintenance Plan, you're able to adjust engine operation or the time between overhauls (TBO). The maintenance plan is based on operating hours and gives the user a complete overview of the MTU engines and monitored on-board equipment such as gearboxes and pumps.
Load profiles-based digital maintenance schedules and maintenance plans based on operating hours.
Condition based Maintenance
The key discipline of the Equipment Health Management System offers the potential for far-reaching improvement in the operation and maintenance of ship propulsion systems. It facilitates supervision of the vessel on the basis of the actual condition of the equipment fitted. The system utilizes the latest analysis techniques to evaluate sensor data and make results available.
Trend Analysis Tool
The Trend Analysis Tool logs analog and binary metrics continuously during operation – once per hour, as a minimum, or whenever a deviation of greater than 1% occurs. The minimum sampling frequency is 1Hz. Trend data can be grouped, and is stored in a dedicated archive.
Baseline Analysis Tool
The Baseline Analysis Tool is used to analyze equipment parameters. Baselines for equipment characteristics are specified during sea trials or during early-stage operation. Alarm limits can be set accordingly. Monitoring and analyzing changes in parameter correlations (i.e. load/fuel consumption, rpm/temperature) can be used to help detect potential failures at an early stage. This allows the user to commence remedial action aimed at preventing further deterioration of equipment, thereby reducing equipment downtime and avoiding unnecessary cost.
Using baselines as an equipment analysis tool offers many benefits, including:
- Early failure detection
- Analysis of equipment characteristics
- Optimum efficiency
- Avoidance of unnecessary cost
