This is done without the need of installing additional sensors. WiDE is based on the Data Collection Monitoring (DCM) unit for collecting and visualising the engine and ship data, as well as the Engine Diagnostic System (EDS) software. It analyses the data and creates value and insight. These capabilities are integrated into a user-friendly, on-board system comprising state-of-the-art hardware, expert software and efficient data analytics techniques. Carmelo Cartalemi, General Manager Business Development, WinGD, said: “WiDE forms part of WinGD’s digital solutions which enhance customer benefits. With WiDE we are able to utilize the power of the machinery data in combination with our engine expertise and advanced data analytic techniques. This allows us to support shipping companies during their day to day operations with valuable insight. We provide live troubleshooting support for engine performance, suggested maintenance and component replacement, reducing operational interruptions.”
