Intelligent cargo handling introduced by MacGregor

MacGregor, part of Cargotec, is set to launch a new intelligent prediction service for equipment on merchant vessels, which it says can predict and monitor upcoming critical issues and communicate them to users to reduce unplanned downtime.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The OnWatch Scout service builds on the company’s experience in remote-equipment access with offshore cranes, and also includes access to MacGregor OnWatch experts, who can connect to the equipment and help resolve ongoing issues.

Alongside the new service MacGregor is also introducing its latest voyage and port optimiser, a platform for pure car truck carrier (PCTC) operators to analyse port calls and identify potential efficiency improvements, as well as a self-learning autonomous discharging feature on MacGregor bulk handling cranes developed with ESL Shipping Oy, part of Aspo Plc.

“We are confident that our customers should be able to capitalise on the wide-ranging benefits that intelligent cargo handling can deliver,” said Marcus Ejdersten, strategic marketing, MacGregor.

“Our commitment to shape the maritime industry, drive its transformation and pioneer intelligent cargo handling means that, alongside our traditional equipment portfolio and worldwide service support, we are continually investing in the growth of new digital services.”

“Our solutions can predict, safeguard, optimise and automate assets and operational performance, and therefore earning potential. We can reduce inefficiencies and maximise capacity utilisation, which has a positive impact on the environment and, through automation, improve safety and efficiency even further.”{/mprestriction}
