In a statement it was also highlighted that Mobil Serv Cylinder Condition Monitoring can also help vessel operators ensure IMO compliance by measuring the sulphur content of marine fuel throughout the fuelling system and as it enters the engine.
This is achieved using the onboard test unit, which employs XRF technology to analyse the fuel’s formulation, compliant to ISO 8754 standard.
Steve Walker, Global Marine Equipment Builder Manager, ExxonMobil, commented
Uniting our next generation cylinder condition monitoring service with WinGD’s data collection and analytics tools creates unrivalled insights into vessel operations.
He continued that this will give peace of mind to ship owners when they will change to transition compliant solutions.
Also, Rolf Stiefel, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at WinGD stated that the combination of the output from WinGD’s Integrated Digital Expert with ExxonMobil’s Mobil Serv Cylinder Condition Monitoring lubricant analysis, will result to an improved and efficient programme.
These innovations will enable shipowners decrease unplanned stoppages, save costs through engine performance optimisation and extend engine overhaul intervals.
