MacGregor has signed a two-year OnWatch Scout predictive maintenance agreement with Athens-headquartered bulker operator Load Line Marine SA to support the operation of vessels in its fleet equipped with MacGregor merchant cranes.
On Watch Scout enables equipment availability to be maximized and maintenance activities more efficiently and cost-effectively planned by increasing the flow of information from ship to shore and applying artificial intelligence and technical expertise to detect patterns that indicate a risk of failure.
“With our focus on providing customers with consistently high performance standards, we are confident that MacGregor’s OnWatch Scout service will enable the operation of our fleet to be further enhanced,” said Yannis Voulgaris, Technical & Purchase Manager at Load Line Marine. “Monitoring and analyzing crane performance data that is streamed directly from the vessels will enable us to make better-informed decisions and reduce problem solving time.”
“We are very pleased that our strong relationship with Load Line Marine and its continuing trust in MacGregor’s service support capabilities has resulted in this OnWatch Scout agreement,” says John Carnall, Senior Vice President, Global Services Division, MacGregor.
MacGregor is a unit of Cargotec (Nasdaq Helsinki: CGCBV).
