ABB SOFTWARE AIMED AT INCREASING SHIPPING EFFICIENCY

ABB is making its Ability Genix Industrial Analytics and AI software suite available for shipping companies, which the company says unleashes the power of advanced analytics and Artificial Intelligence to drive better decisions and significant efficiency gains.

ABB Ability Genix is a scalable advanced analytics platform that collects operational, engineering and information technology data from onboard equipment and converts it into actionable insights that help shipowners improve operational efficiency, safety and sustainability. The solution opens the way to analyse the relationships between processes and events, using embedded fusion hubs, machine learning and advanced analytical components to map out a far richer picture of what is really taking place on a vessel or across a fleet.

ABB estimates that deeper insights into a vessel’s operational data, amplified by AI and analytics, can result in up to 10% fuel reduction, cutting costs and emissions as a result. Additionally, maintenance savings utilising condition-based monitoring and early identification of potential malfunctions improve vessel uptime and reduces essential service visits to vessels by as much as 30%.

Jyri Jusslin, Head of Global Service, ABB Marine and Ports, said: “ABB is now offering the marine industry a scalable platform that is flexible enough to meet today’s needs cost effectively, and robust enough to support tomorrow’s ambitions. Whether the goal is to save fuel and cut emissions, enhance vessel uptime or to improve a company’s financial performance, all digitalization projects benefit from the most extensive monitoring and measurement. Exploiting digital analytics to its full potential relies on comprehensive data.”

With ABB Ability Genix, marine customers can subscribe to a variety of analytics on demand. This makes the solution suited both to shipowners taking their first digital steps as well as those already well advanced in digitalisation and looking to develop a more holistic approach to vessel management.

“ABB Ability Genix allows leveraging the power of data integration that can be customised to a client’s fleet or vessel performance needs,” said Antto Shemeikka, Head of Digital Services, ABB Marine and Ports. “The platform pools large varieties of data from shipboard systems, such as maintenance systems and third-party equipment, to deliver greater data fusion than has ever been possible.”
