mtu NautIQ Foresight
From bridge to propeller
mtu NautIQ Foresight, an Equipment Health Management System (EHMS), is an integral part of our maintenance support system, enabling condition-based data to be received, measured, processed, analyzed, and stored. Stored data can also be displayed graphically, and analyzed data used to improve operational availability and optimize maintenance costs.
mtu NautIQ Foresight collects and analyzes data from mtu systems and third party key components on the vessel, taking into account additional factors, such as navigational data. The aim is to achieve maximum vessel availability, while keeping fuel consumption and CO2 emissions to a minimum.
Improved vessel availability
The mtu NautIQ Foresight maintenance strategy is based on three pillars and maximizes the availability of ship and fleet.
Scheduled maintenance strategy contains the manufacturer's maintenance specifications according to the agreed load profile.
Predictive maintenance strategy performs analysis with real-time and long-term data as well as data of an ideal system condition and reports anomalies to the crew.
In the event of an alarm, corrective maintenance strategy supports the crew with fault tree analysis, videos and related documentation.
Monitoring of fuel oil consumption and measurement of torque is the first step to building up the knowledge about the current vessel status. In combination with the health monitoring data, the performance of the vessel can be analysed and improved. With the aid of weather and navigation data, conclusions can be drawn about the hull condition. Additionally, the optimal speed can be determined. Performance monitoring system enables fuel cost optimisation and contributes to reduced emissions.
Optimized life cycle costs
Maximized availability and peaked performance optimize life cycle costs. Due to the improved planability, downtimes are reduced to a minimum and unplanned maintenance is turned into planned maintenance.
mtu NautIQ Foresight bundles all ship operational data in one system. The combination of engine, power generation, draft and weather data enable in-depth analytics of the vessel's movement and its performance. In the next step, the operation of the vessel can be adjusted in order to run the asset and its equipment efficiently and therefore in an environment-friendly manner.
