WinGD adds Integrated Digital Expert for engines

Winterthur Gas & Diesel (WinGD) has launched a new integrated system for the analysis of engine and ship data, called WiDE (WinGD Integrated Digital Expert).

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}WiDE collects ship and machinery data, which is used to proactively predict engine component malfunctions, and offers support through live troubleshooting and diagnostic advice for the crew. This can be done without the need to install additional sensors, the company said.

The platform uses a Data Collection Monitoring (DCM) unit and its Engine Diagnostic System (EDS) software to gather and visualise the various data, in a way that can be used to support operators in getting the most from their equipment.

The DCM is now installed as standard on all new WinGD engines contracted since the beginning of 2018, but can also be retrofitted to older, electronically controlled engines already in operation.

“With WiDE we are able to utilise the power of the machinery data in combination with our engine expertise and advanced data analytic techniques. This allows us to support shipping companies during their day to day operations with valuable insight,” said Carmelo Cartalemi, general manager business development, WinGD.

“We provide live troubleshooting support for engine performance, suggested maintenance and component replacement, reducing operational interruptions.”

In related news, WinGD has also signed a new 10-year service partnership agreement with Wärtsilä, which includes a provision to make Wärtsilä’s integrated lifecycle solutions available to all WinGD-powered vessels, including the development of new digital solutions for performance management, ship management, and energy efficiency optimisation.

“In addition to securing top-class services for WinGD and customers of WinGD, Wärtsilä and Sulzer-branded two-stroke engine products on a global level for many years to come, the agreement also supports the promotion of new digital solutions for performance management and ship management. Especially digital solutions that optimise the energy efficiency of two-stroke engines are of great interest to customers in merchant shipping,” said Ole Pyndt Hansen, director, Wärtsilä 2-Stroke Engine Services, Wärtsilä Services.{/mprestriction}
