MAN Energy Solutions has announced that it has won a contract from Danish shipping company, Torm, to deliver its PrimeServ Assist digital service to 31 vessels in the Torm fleet.
Per S. Mølris, Head of Technical Decarbonization, Torm, said: “Enabling immediate support to our crews is of highest priority in the digitalisation process Torm is presently engaged in. Digital Service will open the possibility of optimising the main engine performance, not only once a month but continuously, which eventually will lead to reduced CO2 emissions.”
Stig Holm, MAN Head of Marine and Power Digital Denmark, said: “This is yet another significant order that we have concluded within the digital sphere and which will contribute significantly to the further development of our services to the maritime industry. Torm has, over many decades, been a valuable customer for MAN Energy Solutions and the signing of this agreement just emphasises our close cooperation.”
PrimeServ Assist is based on the MAN CEON digital platform and constantly monitors and evaluates all parameters affecting engine performance. With the full data set and the history of the customer’s engine at hand, MAN PrimeServ service engineers sitting in Remote Operating Centres detect anomalies before potential breakdowns and advise on how to keep operations at peak efficiency. PrimeServ Assist acts in different ways to optimise machinery performance to avoid damages or downtime, including through ad-hoc notifications on engine performance (and auxiliary systems) and newly-developed, AI-based algorithms that predict the remaining lifetime of individual components and advise action accordingly.
Torm owns and operates some 80 product tankers carrying refined oil products such as gasoline, jet fuel, naphtha and diesel oil.
