Accelleron, the new face of ABB Turbocharging, and Hoppe Marine, the German provider of maritime measurement solutions, have signed a partnership agreement which will facilitate rapid onboard data collection for Accelleron’s ’s digital solutions used in dedicated engine analysis.
In particular, Tekomar XPERT marine, Accelleron’s comprehensive digital suite that delivers customers with powerful insights into vessel’s hull and propeller performance, as well as emissions tracking and forecasting, will be further enhanced with continuous data connectivity.
Hoppe Marine has extensive experience with data generating systems on board, including automation systems and sensors from different suppliers. This data is delivered in a highly structured and standardized way, and will enable Accelleron to pre-populate the input to Tekomar XPERT marine, thereby increasing efficiency and effectiveness.
“Having fast and accurate information is an essential basis for optimizing vessel performance. This agreement will allow us to leverage Hoppe’s established onboard data collection services to serve our customers even better with value-adding analytic support. The data can be transferred swiftly and accurately, eliminating the need for manual data collection by the crew, and is essentially a ready-to-go system,”
said Mauro De Micheli, Head of Sales, Marketing and Partnerships for Digital solutions, Accelleron.
Hoppe Marine's system infrastructure is designed to enable the collection of data from a wide range of onboard systems. This eliminates the need for shipowners to install additional IoT solutions on board to provide data. This means that high quality data analytics can be carried out continuously, rather than being based on ad-hoc engine readings.
“We are pleased to enter into this important cooperation agreement with Accelleron. Both companies are committed to supporting the maritime sector in its efforts to become carbon neutral. By working together to enable owners and operators to achieve fuel savings, emission reductions, and optimized engine performance, we are delivering concrete evidence of this commitment,”
said Hauke Hendricks, Head of Sales at Hoppe Marine.
Customers retain full control over their vessels’ data, and operational signals can be shared via ship-to-shore connectivity. Furthermore, by having enhanced and continuous readings to provide engine and vessel insights, trends become quickly apparent enabling any required actions to be promptly taken. No cabling or wiring onboard ship is required to connect the two systems.
Both Accelleron and Hoppe Marine are recognized market leaders in their respective fields, and customers seeking state-of-the-art implementation can gain notable benefits from the enhanced service provided through this cooperation agreement.
