TORM adopts real-time engine monitoring from MAN

Danish shipping company TORM has agreed a deal with MAN Energy Solutions to begin using MAN’s PrimeServ Assist digital service to monitor the engines aboard 31 vessels in the TORM fleet.

“Enabling immediate support to our crews is of highest priority in the digitalisation process TORM is presently engaged in,” said Per S. Mølris, Head of Technical Decarbonisation at TORM.

“Digital Service will open the possibility of optimising the main engine performance, not only once a month but continuously, which eventually will lead to reduced CO2 emissions.”

PrimeServ Assist is built on the MAN CEON digital platform and constantly monitors and evaluates parameters affecting engine performance. With this data set and the user’s engine performance history at hand, MAN says that its Remote Operating Centres can detect anomalies before potential breakdowns and advise on how to keep operations at peak efficiency.

Ad-hoc notifications on engine performance and auxiliary systems keep users up to date on noteworthy changes, while AI-based algorithms can help to predict the remaining lifetime of individual components and advise appropriate action.

“This is yet another significant order that we have concluded within the digital sphere and which will contribute significantly to the further development of our services to the maritime industry,” said Stig Holm, Head of Marine & Power Digital Denmark, MAN Energy Solutions.

“TORM has, over many decades, been a valuable customer for MAN Energy Solutions and the signing of this agreement just emphasises our close cooperation.”
