We speak at the Shell Shipping and Maritime Communication meeting about Predictive Maintenance and the relevance to safety and efficiency
On Wednesday October 4th, the Shell Shipping and Maritime Communication meeting will take place in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. During the morning session our colleague Mark Dorsteen is asked to speak about Predictive Maintenance and it's impact on enhancing Marine Safety & Efficiency.
Using Predictive Maintenance to increase safety and assure efficiency
Monitoring risks far before failure occurs is essential to a safe and efficient operation. It's of critical importance to prevent unpredicted failures and downtime. Predicitive Maintenance is THE tool to prevent unpredicted downtime, reduce maintenance costs and increase efficiency in operation.
Our non-invasive monitoring system REDS Maritime detects disturbances in a very earlier stage. It is a system that continuously measures the dynamic torsional vibrations within the engine. Due to this measurement method, we signalize very early on that the engine isn’t operating fully balanced. So instead of a few days in advance we signalize error development within the engine over three weeks in advance. And because it measures the imbalance in such an early stage it allows for intervention. Thereby solving the imbalance before it turns into a problem.
