Japanese shipping giant Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK) and subsidiary Monohakobi Technology Institute (MTI) will be evaluating Wärtsilä’s Expert Insight predictive maintenance service as part of a pilot programme, reports Splash247.
NYK plans to adopt the platform throughout its entire fleet.
Real-time monitoring platform
Expert Insight is a service platform that leverages AI and advanced diagnostics to monitor equipment and systems in real-time, spot system and equipment anomalies and potential problems, and enable rapid reactions.
Should anomalous behaviour be detected, it is flagged to specialists at Wärtsilä expertise centres, allowing them to support the customer. Repair teams can be alerted and sent onboard or they can be waiting at the next port of call.
Shogo Yamada, manager, marine group at NYK, commented: “By leveraging big data and artificial intelligence, the maritime industry can greatly increase its efficiency, safety, and competitiveness, and we are keen to take advantage of this wherever possible.”
