Condition monitoring for thrusters launched

SKF has launched SKF Thruster Monitoring, an integrated condition-based maintenance (CBM) system for propulsion and positioning thrusters (tunnel and azimuthing thrusters).

The solution is based on SKF’s range of condition monitoring products and services, including on-line technology for vibration, lubricant and data monitoring.

The company offers installation and commissioning of the systems, as well as remote data analysis and reporting services, offering suggested reliability improvements based on the monitored results.

“There is a clear desire and trend to integrate existing separate systems onboard a vessel,” said Gerald Rolfe, SKF marine executive business manager.

“The SKF Thruster Monitoring solution combines all required information in one system, which can be integrated with both the thruster and ship management systems.”
