Yanmar Offering Online Tool For Engine Management

By Jack Burke09 January 2020

Yanmar subsidiary Yanmar Engineering announced the deployment of SHIPSWEB, an online tool for managing auxiliary engines on ocean-going vessels.

SHIPSWEB incorporates elements of artificial intelligence and advanced information and communications technology (ICT) to efficiently manage the operation of large auxiliary diesel engines, the company said.

Traditionally, onboard crew communicate with ship management companies via satellite to facilitate engine maintenance of ocean-going vessels while at sea. However, in recent years, crew spend less time onboard ships, while ever-stricter emissions regulations have meant that engines are more complex than ever before making adequate service levels difficult to maintain.

In response to these challenges, Yanmar said it developed the SHIPSWEB service platform to help ensure that customers have access to technical information they need when they need it, supported by the necessary experience and know-how.

Yanmar said it will continue to develop ICT products and services to solve customer’s problems and minimize equipment downtime.
