The project looks at online performance monitoring of a shipboard diesel engine. And the possibility of remote access to key performance indicator. This is a unique selling point in the competitive shipping industry.

But there is uncertainty in the current methodologies. This project uses a new approach to provide the above capability.

The key challenge is to develop online performance monitoring in real time. This would be applicable locally and remotely through the new methodology.

The project aimed to develop a monitoring product. It focuses on offering green benefits to a variety of customers in different marine market sectors.

The areas for development include:

  • Implement the latest technology to develop new modularised monitori
  • Develop intelligent engine management/monitoring systems with telemetry capability
  • Emissions prediction
