Wärtsilä updates its Condition-Based Maintenance (CBM) package and connects more land and sea installations to its CBM centre
In the ever cost conscious energy markets of today, improving profitability and ensuring high levels of availability are both vital targets for every power and marine application. No matter what size or type, a planned approach to Condition-Based Maintenance (CBM) is the solution for today's energy producers and users.
As a response to this demand, Wärtsilä has updated its Condition-Based Maintenance (CBM) package. In addition to users receiving regular CBM reports, they can also connect to Wärtsilä online services where they can access the latest CBM information as well as service bulletins, technical manuals and spare parts.
The CBM process is applicable both to marine and power plant applications. CBM and Remote Monitoring solutions support the daily operation of the installation by applying Wärtsilä's experience and operation knowledge. This keeps the thermal and mechanical load at an optimum level for operation conditions, and enables savings in fuel consumption, while simultaneously providing a more environmentally friendly operation.
Moreover, CBM and Remote Monitoring are key support functions for Operations & Maintenance activities; they ensure streamlined operations with fewer site personnel, the possibility to concentrate to one location with Wärtsilä support tracking several plants, and provide advice as necessary.
