ABB Ability™ Digital SIKO is a further development of the current SIKO concept and is based on individual Turbocharger (TC) operational data.
ABB Ability™ Digital SIKO combines the SIKO calculation with real operational data, taking advantage of new digital capabilities, to enable rotor exchange recommendations specific to a turbocharger’s real operations, what we refer to as “exposure-based maintenance”.
Digital SIKO is currently available for merchant marine low-speed main engine turbochargers.
At the heart of Digital SIKO is exposure-based maintenance, meaning recommended exchange intervals are based on the real operating environments to which an application is exposed. For the operator, this can mean tremendous savings in maintenance costs and increased reliability.
