Shipping company Teekay is expanding its use of ABB Turbocharging's engine diagnostics software to deliver deeper insights at fleet level.

Teekay will roll out Tekomar XPERT for fleet, including the software's new CO2 emissions indicator, across 54 Suezmax and Aframax tankers. The company, which has used Tekomar XPERT to monitor its vessels engines since 2015, will now be able to access deeper insights into fleetwide engine health and performance as well as at-a-glance CO2 emissions data.

While Tekomar XPERT monitors the engines on an individual vessel to deliver diagnostics and advisory, Tekomar XPERT for fleet includes a management tool which enables benchmarking across the fleet, highlighting further opportunities for optimizing engine operations. The company will be able to access data, including fleetwide engine health and annual CO2 emission savings potential, through the Tekomar Fleet Portal. Information will also be integrated into Teekay's Vessel Balanced Scorecard, a proprietary tool that collects data generated by operations systems into a daily digital dashboard for each vessel.

"By proactive diagnostics and maintaining optimum engine performance across the fleet Tekomar XPERT not only enhances reliability and voyage performances but also assists meeting our emission targets. We thank ABB for developing such a pragmatic and user-friendly solution," said Manoharan Jeganathan, Vessel Manager, Teekay.

"Advancing Tekomar XPERT from vessel to Tekomar XPERT for fleet will take Teekay's opportunities for engine optimization to the next level," said Mauro De Micheli, Head of Sales, Marketing and Partnerships, ABB Turbocharging. "We are delighted to extend this partnership with one of the world's biggest and most forward-thinking ship owners and operators."

Built on ABB's Ability platform, Tekomar XPERT deploys unique engine performance evaluation combined with turbocharger expertise, gathered through ABB's wide base of turbochargers in service across thousands of different engine installations. The software empowers ship operators with key engine indicators provided via intuitive dashboards, allowing them to monitor, optimize and benchmark engine performance while giving early warning of potential engine problems.
