ABS classification society SVP discusses how a digital strategy applied to an FPSO can impact its entire value chain, from equipment and inventory to operational efficiency, including optimization of inspections and onboard activities. Coupling these digital solutions with traditional risk-based inspection and maintenance planning techniques has shown a 10:1 ROI opportunity over the total asset life due to optimized repair and inspection planning.



Plantservice editor shares six case studies illustrating some of the numerous ways predictive maintenance and Prescriptive maintenance are transformative. Clear benefits in preventing costly unplanned downtime and lower costs have improved financial justification and driven adoption in a wide range of industries.

Engine manufacturer Wärtsilä is leading the way with its remote support with condition monitoring systems including Expert Insight, Wärtsilä’s unique predictive maintenance product, which utilises artificial intelligence (AI) and advanced diagnostics. The solution is expected to deliver an estimated 50 percent reduction in unplanned maintenance requirements, and an improvement of 2 to 5 percent in fuel efficiency.



Wärtsilä follows through on their data strategy with the deployment of their updated Condition Monitoring Service. The service allows Wärtsilä not only to automatically detect a possible future failure but also to schedule and carry out the required maintenance in a way that minimises stoppages and costs and maximises operational efficiency for the customer. The CMS can be installed on all kinds of vessels. Going forward, Wärtsilä intends to expand the scope to include all types of rotating equipment.



As machinery becomes more complex, Artificial Intelligence and automation stand greatly to enhance the performance of CBM systems, relying less on the rigid rules of engineering and more on the flexibility offered by ML algorithms. Wartsila share their point of vue on how the combination of raw processing power of an AI system with the deep understanding of equipment experts can create the CBM system of the future to support their customers in managing their complex assets.

Ship owners and operators, machinery OEMs and regulatory entities are embracing much needed technological innovation to manage aging and ever complicated maritime assets. Walter Mitchell makes his case on how predictive analytics platforms can greatly assist shipping operators by allowing for more precise planning of maintenance and capital replacement. The result is that the life of the machine can be extended, yielding stronger control over maintenance and capital equipment replacement budgets.
