Korean engine manufacturer HSD Engine - previously known as Doosan Engine - is to offer ABBs diagnostics and advisory software Tekomar Xpert to shipowners operating its two-stroke and four-stroke marine engines.

Tekomar Xpert is a digital performance optimisation platform applicable to any engine that can help shipping companies achieve substantial fuel savings and greenhouse gas emission reductions. Under the agreement, HSD Engine will offer the software as an option to shipowners.

Sang Min Lee, Senior GM HSD Engine said: “In response to market demand, HSD Engine reviewed various solutions for engine performance optimisation and evaluation. We expect that Tekomar Xpert will give us a competitive advantage in the market and our target is to provide it as part of our standard engine package. After a long partnership in the turbocharger field, we are pleased to extend our relationship with ABB into digital solutions to deliver even greater value for our customers.”

Cristian Corotto, SVP Digital Customer Solutions, ABB Turbocharging, said: “This agreement is a strong endorsement of Tekomar Xpert’s capabilities and an important step in expanding the installed base. We are honoured that HSD Engine has chosen to take this step into digital optimisation with us.”

ABB believes that HSD Engine customers deploying Tekomar Xpert will benefit from significantly improved engine performance. The software’s performance evaluation and advisory is based on real engine operating data, transforming them into actionable insights to reduce fuel consumption, cut emissions and optimise maintenance. In addition, using the Tekomar Xpert for fleet web application, managers can benchmark and optimise engine performance across diverse fleets with multiple engine types.

HSD Engine has built low-speed and medium-speed marine engines under licence from leading engine designers since 1983. It delivers between 90-100 engines each year.

ABB Ability Tekomar Xpert currently has an installed base of more than 8,000 engines on over 2,000 vessels.
