ABB Ability™ Tekomar XPERT Features & Highlights

Performance optimization with Tekomar XPERT

Request your personal offer

ABB Ability™ Tekomar XPERT is an engine performance diagnostics and advisory software that accurately evaluates engine performance, quantifies deviations and potential fuel savings. With this information, the inherent intelligence of the software advises you on corrective measures to take in order to return your engine to optimum performance, saving you up to three tons of fuel per vessel, per day.

Tekomar XPERT features two layers of software: The desktop app and the web app

Tekomar XPERT: The desktop app

The Tekomar XPERT desktop app is a client software application that is installed on all vessels and on the superintendents’ computer, offering detailed engine performance analysis. Featuring an intuitive user interface, Tekomar XPERT allows easy data input or import from a variety of systems and devices.  

Feature highlights of the desktop app

Fleet comparison

  • Collate and condense engine performance across your fleet.
  • Quick overview and performance comparison of engines in your fleet.
  • Easy visualization of performance data with the help of traffic lights.
  • Easily drilldown to see details for each engine.

Tekomar XPERT: The web app

The Tekomar XPERT web app (included in the Tekomar XPERT for fleet subscription) is a web-based application that provides a birds-eye view of the performance for all engines in your fleet. The web app which is easily accessible from any device connected to the internet presents all data collected with the desktop app in a condensed format.

What’s more, the web app enables the benchmarking of the engine health and potential savings on fleet and vessels level, providing the technical management team immediate indications about the status of all engines on all vessels.

Feature highlights of the web app

  • Overview of engines’ performance in an entire fleet with a focus on the three KPIs:
    Engine Health, Optimization Potential, Saving Potential per ton / per day
  • Profile-based dashboard view.

Tekomar XPERT: Continuous performance evaluation

As digitalization steadily evolves in the maritime industries, more and more ships and engines are equipped with systems which not only monitor the safety relevant signals but deliver complete datasets which also allow for remote diagnostics. In order to benefit from such automated data collection infrastructure, Tekomar XPERT provides the option of the continuous performance evaluation:

  • Data transfer from customer/3rd party cloud to ABB cloud
  • Automatic reading creation based on detection of stable running condition
  • Synchronization of engine performance valuation back to ship and office (incl. web access)
  • Suitable for new built (fully automatic) and retrofit (manual completion)
  • Save time and increase confidence in data

Tekomar XPERT is the engine performance advisory solution which gives meaning to data!
