WiDE is a decision support solution and consists of two components, the Data Collection and Monitoring (DCM) unit and the Engine Diagnostic System (EDS) software.
WiDE collects signals from the main engine and other ship machinery. Engine and ship data are transmitted through a secure encrypted communication channel and accessible through WinGD’s protected online platform.
WiDE uses advance proprietary algorithms and machine learning to translate harvested data into proactive recommendations. The engine’s digital twin is at the core of WiDE.
WiDE data is available on a dedicated online platform – WiDE Online. This provides a clear view of current engine status, including engine speed and performance, subsystems state and faults identified.
The following engine components are monitored and analysed by WiDE:
Case study: WiDE and WinGD customer support
A WinGD Customer Operation Expert identified, remotely, unusual liner wall temperature fluctuations that were below the level needed to set off engine alarms. A detailed investigation commenced using the remote connection to evaluate all the relevant engine parameters.
The crew were proactively contacted by WinGD’s Customer Operation Expert and notified of a potentially leaking fuel injector on one of the cylinder units that could lead to potential scuffing. They conducted an inspection and confirmed WinGD’s analysis. As a result, the defective fuel injector was replaced and the engine continued to operate as normal.
Customer benefits: the issue was identified and solved before any failures could occur contributing to savings in operational costs while maintaining the availability of the main engine.
