Unlocking greater efficiency in operations performance and energy efficiency - Putting software and analytics into action

This presentation will cover various aspects of software, analytics and methods which can be adopted for electric and hybrid vessel performance management and which feature advanced analytics to detect off-standard behaviour and enable greater operational performance and energy efficiency. These analytical tools offer real-time feedback on operational Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) providing a view on the health of the critical assets and provide early warnings of developing issues with advisories for timely and targeted intervention. The tools outlined in the presentation leverage GE’s expertise in digital solutions, deep domain experience and understanding, across the marine, energy, process industry and infrastructure sectors. Apart from the overall efficiency gains which can be unlocked, the predictive capabilities for equipment/system also enable predictive maintenance, reduce unplanned downtime and increase vessel reliability and availability.
