Condition monitoring instruments can, at a very early stage, help identify issues, that might lead to catastrophic failure. Since the monitored machinery does not require the crew’s attention, they can instead focus on more important tasks. In addition to freeing up the crew’s time, applying condition monitoring can also provide valuable information on operation and periodical maintenance optimization.

Condition Monitoring

No One Wants a Vessel Taken Unexpectedly Out of Operation. Enter Maintenance!  

Breakdowns and malfunctions are never welcomed and can lead to heavy repair costs and loss in earnings, which is why maintenance of equipment is critical. Maintenance schemes and programs have become better over time as focus has shifted from reactionary maintenance towards a more preventive oriented approach.

By avoiding shutting down systems for repairs and planning maintenance work based on experience and calculations, a lot of time and money has been saved, as well as many stressful situations for the crew has been dodged. But, how do you actually know that the preventive maintenance carried out, is not done too excessively and too often, thus actually costing more than necessary? By imple-menting condition monitoring as a concept, you can enable crew and operators to gain an insight in the actual ‘health’ of main and auxiliary systems on board. 

What Is ‘Condition Monitoring’?  

The term ‘condition monitoring’ covers a very wide array of products that are designed to provide indications about a systems’ operational health. When using condition monitoring, the crew and operators can get actual insight about a particular system’s condition by directly analyzing the system or component.

The condition monitoring equipment will provide you with information about wear, tear and present failures. By carrying out systematic and periodical analysis of your equipment you can prevent  unexpected failures and plan your maintenance more wisely, saving time for your crew and money  on equipment repairs. 

How Does it Work? 

As condition monitoring is a definition that includes many different products, it can work in just as many ways. But in general the condition monitoring equipments look for things that are out of the ordinary for example particles in lube oil, contaminants in fuel oil or specific vibrations of engines, shafts and generators. 

By continuously monitoring the day to day operation the crew cannot only determine if maintenance is required but also identify the root cause. 

The upper section contains a collection of condition monitoring equipment, that can assist in optimizing maintenance efforts, identify and prevent critical failures before they happen and minimize down-time by scheduling optimally.
