Wärtsilä’s Data-Driven DMP solution utilizes digital technology and expert analysis to maximise asset uptime.

Wärtsilä’s new Data-Driven DMP solution utilizes digitalization and the company’s extensive capabilities in analytics to enhance the existing Wärtsilä Dynamic Maintenance Planning solution, adding further customer benefits and value not possible with conventional DMP solutions.

Data-Driven DMP increases the uptime of assets and reduces lifecycle costs by optimizing major overhaul intervals, without compromising operational reliability or engine efficiency.

Assets are maintained in prime condition without the need for on-site visual inspections by Wärtsilä personnel, since the solution’s digital capabilities reduce the need for such on-site visits. Customer personnel can be trained to take fluid samples and to carry out borescope inspections of engines with remote support from experienced specialists in Wärtsilä’s Expertise Centers.

Leveraging the new capabilities and keeping the engines in prime condition eliminates the need for the usual opening inspection of the engine.

“Data-Driven DMP adds a new dimension to our Lifecycle Solutions’ value proposition, delivering greater flexibility and increased cost savings for the customer. Existing DMP contracts can be changed to take advantage of the extra benefits provided by Data-Driven DMP, should customers wish,” says Frank Velthuis, Director Digital Product Development, Wärtsilä Marine.

The technology for Data-Driven DMP is supported by Wärtsilä’s Expert Insight product, which enables proactive and rapid advice and assistance to be delivered to customers from the Expertise Centers. Expert Insight has been credited with taking predictive maintenance to the next level.
