Wärtsilä Launches Data-driven Maintenance Service
Wärtsilä introduces its Data-Driven Dynamic Maintenance Planning (Data-Driven DMP) solution aiming to increase the uptime of assets and reduce lifecycle costs by optimizing major overhaul intervals, without compromising operational reliability or engine efficiency.
An enhancement to the company’s existing DMP solution, the new solution is part of the company’s Lifecycle Solutions offering and utilizes digitalization and Wärtsilä’s analytics capabilities
Assets are maintained in prime condition without the need for on-site visual inspections performed by Wärtsilä personnel, since the solution’s digital capabilities reduce the need for such on-site visits. Customer personnel can be trained to take fluid samples and to carry out borescope inspections of engines with remote support from experienced and specialized experts in Wärtsilä’s Expertise Centers.
Leveraging the new capabilities and keeping the engines in prime condition eliminates the need for the usual opening inspection of the engine.
“Data-Driven DMP adds a new dimension to our Lifecycle Solutions’ value proposition, delivering greater flexibility and increased cost savings for the customer. Existing DMP contracts can be changed to take advantage of the extra benefits provided by Data-Driven DMP, should customers wish,” says Frank Velthuis, Director Digital Product Development, Wärtsilä Marine.
The technology for Data-Driven DMP is supported by Wärtsilä’s Expert Insight predictive maintenance product, which enables proactive and rapid advice and assistance to be delivered to customers from the Expertise Centers.
