Turbocharger company Accelleron has signed an agreement with HD Hyundai Marine Solution (HD HMS) that simplifies access to its digital turbocharger optimisation solutions for vessels built or serviced by HD Korea Shipbuilding & Offshore Engineering (KSOE).
As part of the agreement, Accelleron’s Turbo Insights performance analytics platform will be integrated into HD HMS’s Integrated Smartship System (ISS), with further digital solutions also deliverable through ISS on demand. The partnership simplifies how Accelleron turbocharger users apply digital optimisation technologies on vessels built by HD KSOE or serviced by HD Hyundai Marine Solution. It is the first time that HD Hyundai Marine Solution has integrated turbochargers into its digital platform, bringing potential for customers to reduce fuel costs, minimise emissions and optimise maintenance.
Accelleron’s Turbo Insights will deliver up-to-date visibility of turbocharger performance through an interactive compressor map chart and performance KPI, reflecting the turbochargers’ specification and fully integrated into the ISS interface. HD HMS, as a total service provider for all vessels build at HD KSOE, will be able to monitor and support clients by providing an overview of performance across the fleet thanks to the collaboration with Accelleron. Further digital solutions from Accelleron including engine optimisation solution Tekomar Xpert, as well as digitally enabled service solutions Turbo MarineCare, will be available through ISS as options.
Accelleron is said to be the only turbocharger technology provider offering up-to-date insights into performance through a purpose-built platform delivering optimisation and maintenance recommendations. It offers service agreements that use operational data and analytics to deliver predictable maintenance planning and cost.
HD Hyundai Marine Solution Senior Manager, Digital Insight Center Alex J, said: “Our ISS system brings added value to our customers through insights and our new agreement and extended cooperation with Accelleron will provide them with even more thorough information in future.”
Cristian Corotto, President Accelleron Digital Division said: “This unique partnership means that shipowners will be effortlessly digital-ready from the moment their vessel is delivered, providing them with unparalleled transparency into turbocharger health. Together, Accelleron and HD Hyundai Marine Solution are paving the way for a new era of digital optimisation in the shipping industry.”
