Tackling the challenges of lower fuel consumption and emissions in marine

The need to reduce oil consumption is a constant battle for engineers. This applies in particular for the marine industry, where the International Maritime Organization (IMO) is bringing in stringent emissions targets. The ability to monitor and report on the performance and condition of an engine makes it a whole lot easier to keep your engine running as efficiently as possible. And that’s where Tekomar XPERT comes in.

Tekomar XPERT is the only software solution capable of comparing an engine’s performance with shop trial reference, providing instant advice on how to reduce fuel oil consumption. Not only does this help you to cut costs, it also helps to lower your overall environmental footprint.

Tekomar XPERT closes the missing gap in the SEEMP initiative for monitoring, implementing improvements and reporting the efficiency of engines and propulsion systems. There’s currently no other product on the market that can match Tekomar XPERT.

Most propulsion engine builds are now electronically controlled and feature advanced tuning modes which optimize engine operation at part loads, while more complex layouts include waste heat recovery. In addition to evaluation in normal operation modes, Tekomar XPERT also makes it possible to conduct performance runs across all modes and the complete load range, engine tuning depending. This includes:

  • ME engines EGB tuning, incl. linear transition of by-pass valve position
  • RT-flex and W-X engines low-load tuning incl. exhaust valve timing
  • Waste heat recovery, Turbocharger cut out (flexible or permanently), incl. influence of auxiliary blower operation
  • Closed-loop / Auto tuning injection
  • Consistent application of advice given in Tekomar XPERT lead to savings of typically about 0.6t/day on 6S50MC-C or 2.4t/day on a 12K90MC-C

When Tekomar XPERT launched in 2012, it was the only digital solution to offer performance runs against shop trial references at lower loads (<50%). This remains one of our solution's key features, and the ability to extrapolate test bed data into operational references makes Tekomar XPERT the preferred tool for performance evaluation with both main propulsion and auxiliary engines. To date, Tekomar XPERT is installed on more than 6400 diesel engines of more than 1600 marine vessels.

Not only can Tekomar XPERT help your engine run more efficiently, but it’s also easy to integrate with digital cylinder pressure indication devices (online or portable) from many leading manufacturers.
