FLEET-WIDE ORDER FOR ABB DIGITAL EFFCIENCY SOLUTION

Tuesday, August 20, 2019 

ABB has secured its first contract for the latest version of its Ability Tekomar XPERT, covering a fleet of 55 vessels handled by Hamburg based shipmanager CPO Containerschiffreederei (CCPO)

CCPO manages 111 ships for various clients, and was an early adopter of the Tekomar XPERT engine performance diagnostics software during its initial release in 2015. The latest version of Tekomar XPERT, for fleet web application, was launched in June this year at CIMAC Congress. It incorporates the standard features found in the original Tekomar XPERT application along with an additional fleet functionality specifically developed to support management decisions.

Tekomar XPERT for fleet features an easy-access web application interface, which provides 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.

Tekomar XPERT for fleet highlights poorly performing vessels and identifies the adjustments required 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 minimize our environmental footprint; this is a key driver for us when procuring services and products,” said Christoph Gessner, MD CCPO “With Tekomar XPERT for fleet, through optimising our engine health, we can minimize 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.”

CCPO's Tekomar XPERT for fleet package includes additional e-learning, fleet administration and multiple access levels functionality. Tekomar XPERT is a subscription-based solution that 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 fit into the shipping company’s normal IT system.
