ABB is deepening its analytical and predictive approach to vessel maintenance with the latest upgrade of its Remote Diagnostic Service (RDS).
The lastest video from ABB Marine shows how upgraded software functionalities will give more power and transparency to the shore side operations of ship owners as ABB has focused more resources on the proactive monitoring of data and predictive analytics.
The enhancement of ABB’s digital services comes after an internal study found existing remote monitoring of machinery reduced maintenance costs by 50%.
To further leverage the data received from vessels, the ABB Digital Service team has been strengthened with more data scientists and architects to promote the search for insight into the health of the monitored assets.
The ABB software used as part of the Remote Diagnostic Services combines the capabilities of a dedicated onboard software with a full analytic engine onshore.
Due to this modularity and capability, the software can now run the same analytics onboard as onshore.
ABB is one of the leading advocates of the digitalization of shipping and has already launched Integrated Operation Centers in Asia, Europe and the USA where data produced by ships is received and monitored.
