HGS CHOOSES ABB ENGINE OPTIMISATION

HGS CHOOSES ABB ENGINE OPTIMISATION

Tuesday, February 2, 2021 

A new agreement with Hyundai Global Services (HGS) is expected to significantly expand the number of vessels deploying ABB's Tekomar Xpert software for engine performance optimisation, with HGS recommending the solution as an enhancement option for all vessels built by Hyundai Heavy Industries from 2018.

ABB Ability Tekomar Xpert uses modelling based on operational data to optimise engine performance. The combination of Tekomar Xpert’s analytic capabilities and input from Hyundai’s own onboard data systems – Integrated Smartship Solution (ISS) and DATS – will enable ship operators to reduce fuel consumption and emissions, and achieve optimal engine performance.

Cristian Corotto, Global head of Digital Customer solutions, ABB Turbocharging, said: “We are delighted to have received this recognition from one of the world’s biggest shipbuilders and a leading engine OEM. Harnessing the combined data solutions from ABB and Hyundai will improve the capabilities of ship operators to transform their engine data into actionable insights.”

The agreement follows a pilot project in 2019 in which HGS worked with a satellite communications company to provide remote support services to its customers’ vessels. At the same time, the company deployed Tekomar Xpert to provide insights on engine performance from data gathered via Hyundai’s ISS platform.

Tekomar Xpert is fully compatible with Hyundai’s ISS and DATS systems - as well as solutions from other OEMs, shipbuilders and platform providers - following the recent introduction of a continuous performance evaluation function that enables Tekomar Xpert to process data from edge computing platforms.

The partnership with Hyundai is the latest development in the roll out of Tekomar Xpert, which can be used to optimise the performance of any marine engine, regardless of the brand or maker.
