NYK Advances Maritime Autonomy with CBM Trial s the marine industry evolves toward autonomous op- erations, one of the sticking

Apoints traditionally has been centered on maintenance and answering the question: “what happens when ma- chinery needs ? xed?”

Helping to advance the technologies is the NYK Group, which recently ? nished a joint re-search agreement for develop- ing advanced condition-based mainte- nance (CBM), a new maintenance and management process for ship machinery which eschews the maritime practice of time-based maintenance (TBM). In fact, the global shipping giant has started ver- i? cation during actual ship opera-tions.

In accordance with the NYK Group’s medium-term management plan “Stay- ing Ahead 2022 with Digitalization and

Green,” the group is promoting digitali- zation initiatives, and strives to enhance innovation in the shipping industry with various partners making use of opera- tional big data.

Leveraging the ability to rapidly col- lect and disseminate large amounts of data from ship to shore, machinery plant data from many sensors will be shared and monitored with the classi? cation so- ciety and engine manufacturers in real time, advancing maintenance manage- ment. In the future, the NYK Group will use this data and real-time monitoring to develop an advanced CBM to realize manned autonomous vessels.

The Joint Research

In addition to SIMS2, (which is a ship information management system devel- oped by NYK and MTI and allowing

Your potential, our mission data-sharing among workplaces on land and sea in real-time) a new sensor and equipment package are installed in two different types of main engine and main steam turbine, and detailed operational data such as vibration and temperature of bearing are to be collected. The con- dition of the engine will then be shared and constantly monitored by the classi? - cation society and engine manufacturers.
