The EDCenter, as heart of the e-line concept of International Technology, is a modern engine diagnostic cloud application. The system analyses and diagnoses the condition of the engines based on various parameters and predicts incipient failures from every ship of the entire fleet. The system also continuously analyses the fuel consumption and indicates if savings can be achieved.
The effectiveness of the overall solution helps keeping track of the engine condition and fuel consumption with an easy traffic-light navigation across the entire fleet. Furthermore, the powerful multi-user system automates the huge data collecting and analyzing process. The EDCenter changes the habit of waiting for weeks to receive reports to be analyzed. In emergency cases chiefs, superintendents, fleet manager as well as external experts will automatically be alarmed by e-mail in order to take immediate action to ensure energy efficiency and low maintenance costs.
The system allows an easy navigation to drill down from the company level to the ship and engine level.
Depending on customer needs, the EDCenter operates with the unique operating environment of each engine such as the operation profile, fuel type, load pattern, ambient conditions, which influences the engine. The EDCenter effectively optimizes the operational availability by grouping the important parameters. The system continuously analyses the fuel parameters and indicates in traffic lights if savings can be achieved.
- Fleet engine diagnosis based on key performance indicators KPI's
- Fuel consumption/savings per engine, vessel, fleet, group and company
- Engine performance history view
- Comparing engines across the fleet
- Free communication access with chat functions
- User administration to give temporary external experts access
- Unlimited data upload and storage
- Get online status of the entire engine on smart devices, etc.
Open engine data capturing
The EDCenter captures the data directly from the vessel. International Technology supplies different possibilities of how to capture the individual engine parameters:
The data capturing can be chosen independently, flexibly and modular.
Key performance indicators (KPI)
Individual key performance indicators (KPI's) can be selected by the customer chosen from 300 existing parameters. New individual parameters can easily be added. Logically, the chosen setup will have an impact on the automatic diagnosis of the system.
Increase profit by improved monitoring
Data can be analyzed daily or monthly. However, the engine builders gives the following advice: to cut costs and increase the safety and operational availability of the engines, collecting data once a day is sufficient for addressing the real maintenance need. As soon as the data is captured by the system, the report is immediately available in the EDCenter and the engine condition is grouped in the complete fleet overview. The engine condition is automatically evaluated and determined by the EDCenter and indicated by the traffic light. Since all parameters are online accessible, the system allows immediate attention if an engine or a specific engine parameter requires it.
