Greek Slant on Engine Monitoring on SNAME Athens Agenda

Press Release
Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Greek Section of The Society of Naval Architects & Marine Engineers (SNAME) upcoming meeting will hear about the technology.

At its third technical meeting for the 2012-2013 season, Mr. Nicholas Kolliarakis, Managing Director at MIE Company Ltd, Greece will speak on the subject of: Engine Monitor: The Greek Answer to Engine Performance Monitoring”.

In a time of high bunker prices efficient operation of the engine becomes critical. Engine monitor is a tool which aims to fulfill that need. It is a web based software, which by evaluating a minimum possible amount of engine data, commonly available on board, is capable to verify the quality of engine operation and hull/propeller cleanliness.

Diagnostic comments are also generated every time a deviation exists between the actual, and the optimum value (the value in ‘‘as new’’ condition, under same power output) of an operating parameter.

Valuable conclusions may be drawn for possible underwater fouling, air supply to cylinders, fouling of turbocharger, wear of HP fuel oil pumps, defects in ring packs/exhaust valves, condition of fuel injection equipment and cleanliness of air cooler.

The software requires no additional equipment or instruments than the ones commonly found on board a vessel, and the trend function along with available KPI's, serve as a monitoring tool for effective management of engine/hull condition and maintenance.

Details of the meeting:
 
Date                :           Thursday, December 13th, 2012
Time                :           7.00 pm
Location          :           The auditorium of Maran Tankers Inc.  (ex Kristen Navigation).
                                     354 Syngrou Ave. (building before the Onassion Hospital)
                                     Kallithea, Athens
