German ship manager signs up 55 vessels to Tekomar XPERT for fleet

Ship manager CCPO is the first to adopt ABB Ability Tekomar XPERT for fleet Ship manager CCPO is the first to adopt ABB Ability Tekomar XPERT for fleet

Hamburg-based ship manager CPO Containerschiffreederei (CCPO) has secured a contract for ABB Ability Tekomar XPERT for its fleet of 55 vessels.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} Tekomar XPERT, a smart engine performance diagnostics software was adopted by CCPO during its initial release in 2015. In June, Tekomar XPERT for fleet web application was launched with the German ship manager confirming its continued support of the software for performance monitoring and management.

Tekomar XPERT for fleet is a subscription-based solution that features all standard features found in the original Tekomar XPERT application with the additional fleet functionality specifically developed to support management decisions.

The software benefits from an easy to access web application interface, which provides accurate insight into engine performance from fleet to vessel level through key performance indicators (KPIs) such as engine health, optimisation potential and fleet performance benchmarking. These KPIs provide a helicopter view of engine performance across an entire fleet regardless of engine make, type and age. Ships and fleets are listed according to current performance and provide the technical management with an immediate indication on their status.

According to ABB, it facilitates the benchmarking and ranking of engines, vessels and fleets and the user-friendly dashboard can be customised according to role.

Tekomar XPERT for fleet also identifies the necessary adjustments required for vessels to reach optimum engine performance and efficiency at a fleet wide level, creating both fuel and emissions savings.

“We are always looking to adopt the latest technological advances to minimise our environmental footprint; this is a key driver for us when procuring services and products,” said Christoph Gessner, managing director, CCPO “With Tekomar XPERT for fleet, through optimising our engine health, we can minimise costs and the environmental footprint, and in return we can pass on these benefits to our customers.”

Beat Güttinger, head of Tekomar, ABB Turbocharging said: “We are continuously looking to improve our offerings to more advanced solutions and supporting our customers to differentiate themselves in the market. Our long-standing positive relationship with CCPO, being an early adopter of our latest web application on CCPO’s entire fleet, demonstrates their confidence in ABB’s ability to deliver innovative solutions to the market.”

Tekomar XPERT can be used with any diesel or gas engine, irrespective of manufacturer, type, age or size. There is no hardware to install and the application can be dropped into the shipping company’s normal IT system.

More than 1,500 vessels have been equipped with the software to date.

    Klaveness Ship Management has expanded its contract with DNV GL after a successful pilot of the DNV GL Veracity platform.

    The contract expansion will see another eight Klaveness vessels use Veracity. According to the companies, the pilot project, which began in 2019, indicated that a reduction in fuel consumption was possible by combining and visualising operational, positioning and engine data.

  • ABB and DNV GL make history with first vessel cybersecurity verification

    In a milestone for the marine industry, ABB’s solutions onboard a large passenger ship have been awarded cybersecurity verification from classification society DNV GL. 

    As a result, this vessel became the industry’s first to achieve system compliance under DNV GL’s framework for integrated cybersecurity.

    The state-of-the-art cybersecurity resilience for the vessel was enabled by close collaboration of ABB, the shipowner and DNV GL during the construction phase at a shipyard in Europe. Cybersecurity management processes will continue during the ship’s operations, with the system’s resilience maintained throughout the lifetime of the vessel.

    “It is vital that the maritime industry focuses on cybersecurity as an essential part of both design and operation,” said Johann Melsted, area manager Benelux & France for DNV GL. “Which is why we are so pleased to be working with forward looking partners, who are prepared to engage with this emerging risk and demonstrate their commitment to tackling cyber threats.”

    In order to achieve sustainable shipping, vessels are increasingly fitted with integrated automation systems and digital solutions. As part of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, the vessel’s systems are more connected than ever before, presenting threat vectors previously unheard of in shipping. This is driving the need for closer and earlier collaboration on cybersecurity between all key stakeholders in the newbuilding process. DNV GL’s Integrated Cyber Security Dependent Systems verification establishes a framework to address cybersecurity levels for the main functions of a vessel – both during construction and in operation.

    While the framework is applicable to any vessel, greater sophistication and deeper integration of operational technology systems in complex vessels such as cruise ships mean that appropriate cybersecurity management is paramount. While digitalisation offers opportunities to measure and manage efficiencies across the entire fleet, securing these data streams is critical to the safety of the vessels’ passengers and crew.

    “ABB recognises the importance of cybersecurity in the marine industry and is working closely with shipowners, yards and classification societies to enhance cyber resilience of ships,” said Juha Koskela, managing director, ABB Marine & Ports. “As vessels become more electric, digital and connected than ever before, it is of vital importance that we equip and empower seafarers with reliable solutions that are cyber secure.”

    The vessel is powered by ABB Azipod electric propulsion system.
