Wärtsilä’s new data-driven dynamic maintenance planning (DMP) programme adds to the company’s existing predictive maintenance, utilising digitalisation and analytics
The company said its new offering will be available through its Lifecycle Solutions service agreements.
According to Wärtsilä, data-driven DMP increases asset uptime and reduces lifecycle costs by optimising major overhaul intervals.
The programme removes the need for onsite visual inspections to be performed by Wärtsilä personnel. Customer personnel can be trained to take fluid samples and to carry out borescope inspections of engines with remote support from experienced specialists in Wärtsilä’s maintenance centres.
Technology for the data-driven DMP is supported by Expert Insight, Wärtsilä’s in-house predictive maintenance platform which will help to deliver advice and assistance from maintenance centres to customers.
Wärtsilä has also joined a consortium of organisations that aim to replace diesel propulsion with battery propulsion in inland waterway shipping in the Netherlands.
Wärtsilä director digital product development Frank Velthuis said “Data-driven DMP adds a new dimension to our Lifecycle Solutions’ value proposition, delivering greater flexibility and increased cost savings for the customer. Existing DMP contracts can be changed to take advantage of the extra benefits provided by data-driven DMP, should customers wish.”
