ESRG introduced the industrial internet to the marine sector with cloud-based total vessel monitoring and analytics. ESRG’s OstiaEdge platform as a service (PaaS), combined with cloud-based data-centers, enable ship managers and owners to have visibility into the performance and health of shipboard equipment from anywhere, including mobile devices. Data is automatically collected, validated and analyzed onboard the vessel and then automatically synched with remote data centers which provide the data, along with automated analytics, in the cloud.
Owners, managers and operators can log in via any internet connected device, anywhere, and use the online automated analytics to understand how the vessel is operating and use that information to make better operations and maintenance decisions. Vessel fuel performance can be analyzed to determine what is driving fuel consumption, which generator configuration is optimal, how fuel efficiency has changed over time or compare multiple vessels across a fleet. Equipment health analytics enable better maintenance planning and can help make the jump from an “operate-break-fix” paradigm to a “predict-optimize-prevent” paradigm. ESRG’s platform is in line with the broader industrial internet growth, whereby industrial equipment, including diesel engines, generators, ballast systems, emissions systems, navigation systems, etc, generate huge amounts of data that is used to boost efficiency, prevent unexpected failures and ensure compliance.
ESRG’s OstiaEdge platform is specifically designed to overcome the challenges of implementing a cloud-based monitoring and analytics solution in the marine industry and deliver a low-cost, easy to use solution that can provide immediate results. ESRG It does not replace current systems, but rather integrates existing data and automatically analyzes that data in real-time to help optimize equipment efficiency and performance. ESRG’s migration to the cloud is part of a continuous improvement roadmap focused on increasing customer ROI by increasing value to the customer while decreasing required customer investment and cost.
