Wärtsilä has introduced a data-driven analytics feature to its dynamic maintenance planning (DMP) solution.

This latest feature increases the uptime of assets and reduces lifecycle costs by optimising major overhaul intervals without compromising reliability or engine efficiency.

“Data-driven DMP adds a new dimension to our Lifecycle Solutions’ value proposition, delivering greater flexibility and increased cost savings for the customer,” said Frank Velthuis, director digital product development, Wärtsilä Marine. “Existing DMP contracts can be changed to take advantage of the extra benefits provided by Data-Driven DMP, should customers wish,” he added.

Assets are maintained in prime condition without the need for on-site visual inspections by Wärtsilä. Customer personnel can be trained to take fluid samples and to carry out borescope inspections of engines with remote support from specialists in Wärtsilä’s Expertise Centres.

The technology for data-driven DMP is supported by Wärtsilä’s Expert Insight product, which enables proactive advice and assistance to be delivered to customers from the Expertise Centres.
