To successfully manage a fleet, risks must be assessed – including the condition of propulsion equipment. As propulsion machinery is largely mounted underwater, it cannot be physically examined internally without going into dry dock. The Wärtsilä Propulsion condition monitoring service (PCMS) is class-approved and eliminates the need to enter a dry dock for visual inspections. The service provides you with up-to-date and in-depth information about the condition of your vessel’s propulsion equipment.
The Wärtsilä Propulsion condition monitoring service provides you with real-time advice and regular reports about the condition of your machinery. With PCMS you can improve your vessel’s availability, reliability and profitability, while reducing risks and maintenance costs.
PCMS measures vibrations and oil condition in order to effectively monitor gears, bearings, the propeller and other propulsion equipment components. The service also gathers operational parameters from the propulsion control system.
