Great Eastern installs ABB Tekomar XPERT on bulkers

Great Eastern installs ABB Tekomar XPERT on bulkers

(Posted on 28/09/20)

The Great Eastern Shipping Company (GESCO) is to install ABB Ability Tekomar XPERT engine performance monitoring and diagnostic software across its fleet of 46 bulk carriers and tankers. The development, marking the first time that India’s largest private ship owner has rolled out fleetwide engine monitoring software, follows a successful trial on two vessels.

ABB Turbocharging’s Tekomar XPERT system will allow onboard analysis of engine performance across GESCO’s fleet, providing instant diagnostics and optimization recommendations as opposed to the previous manual measurements and monthly data analysis. The tool will also simplify the task of GESCO’s performance management department, which analyses engine data from all vessels and compiles submissions for the EU’s Monitoring, Reporting and Verification regulation and IMO’s Data Collection System for carbon emissions.

Anjan Kumar Sahu, Head of Technical, GESCO, said: “Our fleet has been growing and we wanted monitoring software that could help to analyze engine performance and guide us to better-running engines. After several meetings with ABB we installed Tekomar XPERT on two vessels. The feedback from our superintendents was that the software identified engine issues and potential future issues.”

One of the main benefits of Tekomar XPERT is cutting the cost and time needed to identify the cause of engine problems, Mr Sahu added. Engine makers often require further data at specified loads to isolate the cause of an engine problem, leading to further delay in resolving issues. Tekomar XPERT can identify root causes of engine performance deviations automatically during normal operation, minimizing delay and facilitating rapid corrective action.

Rajendra Gaikwad, Head of Service Business, ABB Turbocharging India, said: “Tekomar XPERT will enable GESCO to instantly analyze and drill down into the engine data it is recording to improve troubleshooting and optimize engine performance. We are delighted to be working in collaboration with GESCO and are honored by this sign of confidence from one of the biggest names in Indian shipping.”

Tekomar XPERT empowers ship owners and operators with key engine indicators provided via intuitive dashboards, allowing them to monitor, optimize and benchmark engine performance while preventing engine problems. It runs on any engine, regardless of type or age and is built on the ABB Ability™ platform with the highest standards of cyber security.

ABB Turbocharging is at the helm of the global industry in the manufacture and maintenance of turbochargers for 500 kW to 80+ MW diesel and gas engines. ABB is a leading global engineering company that energizes the transformation of society and industry to achieve a more productive, sustainable future.
