Hyundai and WinGD in ‘smart ship’ agreement

Winterthur Gas & Diesel (WinGD) and Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) have signed a new agreement to integrate a range of intelligent ship systems, from the engine room to the bridge, to improve vessel performance.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The collaboration agreement will see data analytics generated by the ‘smart engine’ systems in WinGD’s existing Engine Diagnostic System directly integrated with the INTEGRICT Smart Ship Solution developed by HHI.

WinGD’s Engine Diagnostic System (EDS) provides continuous diagnostics relating to the performance of vessel engines and other components, allowing the operator to be alerted prior to an alarm indicating necessary maintenance, to improve safety and to avoid unscheduled engine interruptions.

In 2017, HHI launched its INTEGRICT-Smart Ship Solution (ISS), which collects and analyses real-time information on vessel navigation to provides a standardised navigation platform that can share information amongst users with varying degrees of knowledge.

“The shipping industry is constantly looking for new and efficient solutions to improve profitability through reduced operating costs. Recent progress in information and communication technology and the availability of robust digital solutions are creating new opportunities within the marine industry,” said Carmelo Cartalemi, general manager, business development at WinGD. 

“The integration of HHI’s ISS and our EDS creates the possibility to access even more detailed data analysis by drawing on the core competencies of both companies, leading to unique and highly valuable insights.”

HHI and WinGD note that this agreement will be a first step towards a deeper collaborative relationship, which will see the companies work together to develop additional technologies to support ship operations.

“We believe that ship operation can be further improved through a smart ship solution. With WinGD we have the possibility to access deeper insights from the main engine,” said Heung Won Seo, research director, HHI.

“Combined with our ISS intelligence this offers our customers a level of knowledge and understanding of their ship that is unparalleled.”{/mprestriction}
