CMA CGM was one of the first ship operators to implement Tekomar XPERT as their engine diagnostics system. Starting in 2014 with an initial number of 70 vessels in its fleet, the software was soon extended to the newer fleet. The liner’s ship manager CMA Ships continues to equip new buildings with Tekomar XPERT as these vessels approach service. With the addition of the APL fleet, a total of 140 CMA vessels are now equipped with Tekomar XPERT.
CMA Ships has “environmental concerns at the heart of the Group's strategy”. One of the initiatives has been therefore to optimize engine operation. With the introduction of Tekomar XPERT, the French Container Liner does not only save hundreds of tons of fuel and inevitably reduces emission, the software also enables the engineers to achieve fuel-efficient operations.
Tekomar XPERT also helps to improve the collaboration and conversation between onboard engineers and office-based vessel managers with regards to engine performance.
