Wärtsilä has launched a new version of its Wärtsilä Engine efficiency monitoring service that accommodates dual-fuel technology, such as for engines that use Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) fuel. With this service, customers can optimise their fuel consumption by adjusting their operations according to real-time data. The service includes expert advice on overhaul and operational pattern.
By extending the service to DF engines, Wärtsilä is strengthening its strategic focus on gas-fuelled engine technology. The Engine efficiency monitoring service also serves as a solid foundation for developing efficiency monitoring to include a wide range of operations of a gas or DF engine operated ship or power plant.
The Wärtsilä Engine efficiency monitoring service is part of Wärtsilä Genius services, a new area of expertise designed to help customers optimise their operations and seize the opportunities offered by digitalisation, launched in November 2015.
“The main concerns for all our customers are uptime and cost-efficiency, both of which have a direct impact on profitability. We are developing Wärtsilä Genius services with these concerns in mind – we want to ensure that our customers can get the most out of their assets, while operating in a safe and environmentally friendly way,” says Mikko Tepponen, Director Digitalisation, Wärtsilä.
