  • New portfolio combines mtu and Servowatch technologies
  • Modern and future-proof solutions from bridge to propeller for vessels of all kinds and sizes
  • Portfolio provides customers with complete lifecycle solutions

Rolls-Royce will be showcasing its complete mtu NautIQ marine automation portfolio for the first
time at the DSEI defence and security exhibition in London  from 14 to 17 September (booth H7-210). The new portfolio includes a range of both new and proven platform management and ship control systems for vessels of all kinds and sizes, including naval and commercial ships as well as leisure craft. The mtu NautIQ automation system family has been specifically designed for both newbuild vessel systems and to enable easy retrofit of legacy systems on older vessels. Setting up the new portfolio is part of Rolls-Royce business unit Power Systems’ transformation into a provider of integrated sustainable power and propulsion solutions.

Knut Müller, Vice President Global Governmental at Rolls-Royce business unit Power Systems, said: “With mtu NautIQ, we combine the advantages of our mtu technologies with those of Servowatch, the supplier of integrated marine automation solutions which we acquired in December 2020. We are now not only offering our customers reliable state-of-the-art automation solutions but complete lifecycle solutions from one trusted source through onboard data collection and analytics.”

The new product range consists of reliable, efficient and future-proof control and management
solutions from bridge to propeller. mtu NautIQ Master is the newest generation of Rolls-Royce’s integrated platform management system (IPMS). The advanced, customized solution meets the complex automation and integration requirements of operators of modern specialized vessels. All the various subsystems of a ship are integrated into a single, intelligent overall system.

mtu NautIQ Master is a fully integrated turnkey automation solution that will replace the mtu Callosum system: mtu NautIQ Master offers the same base functionalities as Callosum with enhanced features on a much more flexible and future-proof platform.

An important contribution to more sustainable and reliable vessel operations is mtu NautIQ
Foresight, the new Equipment Health Management System (EHMS) from Rolls-Royce. It monitors the technical condition of a complete vessel from bridge to propeller, collecting and analysing data from mtu and third-party components. This enables predictive maintenance before a component fails and assists the ship’s crew to operate the vessel at peak efficiency. mtu NautIQ Foresight can
help to achieve maximum vessel availability and minimum fuel consumption – and CO2 emissions – for single ships and entire fleets.

The mtu NautIQ portfolio also includes innovative and proven solutions for the commercial and
yacht application, such as the fully integrated bridge touchscreen-based solution mtu NautIQ Bridge and mtu NautIQ Genoline NG which enables the optimum operation of onboard power generation equipment.

All products of the mtu NautIQ family are based on state-of-the-art software platforms and
allow for the easy integration or upgrades of additional hardware, software and auxiliary equipment through the vessels’ lifetime, effectively reducing obsolescence risks and affording customers long-term planning and reliability.
