Korean engine manufacturer HSD Engine will offer ABB’s diagnostics and advisory software Tekomar XPERT to shipowners operating its two-stroke and four-stroke marine engines.
Tekomar XPERT is a digital performance optimization platform applicable to any engine designed to help shipping companies achieve substantial fuel savings and greenhouse gas emission reductions. Under the agreement, HSD Engine will offer the software as an option to shipowners, strengthening Tekomar XPERT’s position in the market.
“In response to market demand, HSD Engine reviewed various solutions for engine performance optimization and evaluation,” said Sang Min Lee, Senior General Manager, HSD Engine. “We expect that Tekomar XPERT will give us a competitive advantage in the market and our target is to provide it as part of our standard engine package. After a long partnership in the turbocharger field, we are pleased to extend our relationship with ABB into digital solutions to deliver even greater value for our customers.
ABB said HSD Engine’s customers deploying Tekomar XPERT will benefit from significantly improved engine performance. The software’s performance evaluation and advisory is based on high quality, reliable engine operating data, transforming them into actionable insights to reduce fuel consumption, cut emissions and optimize maintenance. In addition, using the Tekomar XPERT for fleet web application, managers can benchmark and optimize engine performance even across diverse fleets with multiple engine types.
HSD Engine, previously known as Doosan Engine, has delivered low-speed and medium-speed marine engines developed by leading engine designers since 1983. It continues to deliver between 90-100 engines each year.
