Load Line Marine to implement predictive maintenance tech with MacGregor

MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has signed a two-year agreement with Load Line Marine to support predictive maintenance and optimised operation of its fleet equipped with MacGregor merchant cranes.

Installation and testing of the OnWatch Scout Predict system will start on board four vessels during the first quarter of 2021, the companies said.

The new technology will be used to increase the flow of information from ship to shore, where artificial intelligence will be applied to the data collected to detect patterns that indicate a risk of failure so that equipment availability can be maximised, and maintenance activities more efficiently planned.

“With our focus on providing customers with consistently high-performance standards, we are confident that MacGregor’s OnWatch Scout service will enable the operation of our fleet to be further enhanced,” said Yannis Voulgaris, Technical & Purchase Manager, Load Line Marine.

“Monitoring and analysing crane performance data that is streamed directly from the vessels will enable us to make better-informed decisions and reduce problem solving time.”
