MAN Diesel & Turbo: Great potential in high-tech monitoring systems

MAN Diesel & Turbo sees great perspectives in the company’s monitoring systems which via advanced software enable users on land to spot damages on ships and partly repair these.

Many are predicting a successful future for advanced monitoring systems, which can already now spot defects on ships from land. Combined with satellite communication equipment, the systems provide shipowners with a list of new opportunities which will, in the long term, save them a lot of time and, possibly most importantly, money. Even though the shipowners are still hesitant to pour money into the systems, MAN Diesel & Turbo is optimistic.

“We are already seeing a growing demand from customers who want the engine monitoring systems integrated as an integral part of a standard engine delivery. Today, all our ME-type motors are delivered with all the necessary fitted hardware, and each motor even has a defined IP address,” says Henrik Striboldt, Business Development Manager with MAN Diesel & Turbo to ShippingWatch. Striboldt sees great potential in the relatively new technology and he expects a markedly increasing demand in the coming years, both regarding opportunities for remote monitoring, guidance, and technical support.
