K-Line seeks further fuel savings with ClassNK CMAX

20 Jun 2016

K-line Ship Management has selected ClassNK Consulting Service’s machinery condition monitoring and automatic diagnostic system for use on one of its container vessels.

ClassNK CMAXS LC-A had a successful trail installation in 2014, where it delivered proven fuel and lubricating oil savings of 200 tonnes per year.  

Using diagnosis algorithms, the CMAXS LC-A analyses multiple sensor data in the engine room and detects early signs of machinery damage.

The solution automatically shows the condition of a wide variety of machinery in real-time and provides the relevant instructions and procedure manuals. It then proposes the optimum setting value for main engine optimum operation based on the result of the automatic condition diagnosis.

ClassNK CMAXS LC-A’s main engine optimum setting value function supports ship operators and ship management companies in reducing fuel and lubricating oil costs. Its troubleshooting function aims to support the crew in preventing second damage, streamlining necessary repair and maintenance work.

Information such as sensor data and condition monitoring results obtained from ClassNK CMAXS LC-A’s onboard system are sent to and stored on the cloud database managed by Ship Data Centre, a subsidiary company of ClassNK, and shared between the vessel and shipping company.
