Health check for ships [DSEI17D2]

13 September 2017

Rolls-Royce (Stand S6-210) is premiering the new Equipment Health Monitoring (EHM) function available with the MTU Callosum Ship Automation System.

According to the company, the latest EHM extension provides a real-time picture of the status of the vessel and its propulsion system. Callosum employs the latest analysis techniques and machine learning based on digital measurement data to prevent faults and match maintenance to actual equipment condition. As a result, maintenance needs and life-cycle costs are minimised while availability and planning reliability for operational forces are increased. Visitors to the Rolls-Royce stand will be able to view a simulation of the EHM extension for Callosum that today already meets the requirements modern naval forces can expect to encounter in the future.

The stand also features models of the new MTU 16V 8000 engine and the advanced diesel genset for submarines based on the company’s Series 4000 units. Available from 2018, MTU’s 16-cylinder Series 8000 engine delivers up to 8,000kW at 1,150rpm and is characterised by its low total cost of ownership, high power density and its environmentally friendly credentials.

The MTU brand is part of Rolls-Royce Power Systems.
