MARIJE RUYSCH-KOSTER SPEAKS AT TKI MARITIME SEMINAR ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF COLLABORATION AND INNOVATION

On 12 December 2017, the seminar 'Blue Future' organized by the Top Consortium Knowledge & Innovation Maritime (TKI Maritime), took place. Several Maritime-related companies were asked to speak about innovation and cooperation. Marije Ruysch-Koster took those present into the innovative journey of Aviso Instruments. How a young, small company came up with an innovative product that is completely new to the maritime sector. REDS Maritime is the result of the collaboration between a French mathematician, a Dutch software expert and Aviso’s vibration and engine experts.

REDS MARITIME: DETECTING ENGINE IMBALANCE AND IDENTIFIING THE CAUSE

REDS Maritime is a revolutionary monitoring system that continuously measures the status and balance of combustion engines. This is done by measuring the dynamic torsional vibrations within the engine. This enables us to signalize imbalance within the engine and also identifies the cause of the problem. This gives the asset owner the following benefits:

  • Less fuel consumption
  • Less CO2 emissions
  • Increased uptime and productivity
  • Savings on maintenance costs
  • Early detection prevents damage

COLLABORATION IS ESSENTIAL FOR AVISO INSTRUMENTS

Cooperation resulted in the creation of REDS Maritime, but for Aviso Instruments it doesn’t stop there. Aviso operates from the philosophy that collaboration, both internally and externally is essential for innovation, growth and business continuity.

But, how do you ensure that people are able and willing to work together? For this issue we use the Real Drives measurement instrument. The Real Drives perspective assumes that people look at the world from a certain motive. By measuring which motives someone has and then responding to that, people are able to work together much more effectively.

In addition to Aviso Instruments, Royal IHC, Damen and TU Delft were also present at the seminar. More information, pictures and presentations can be found here.
