Germany-based ship management company CPO Containerschiffreederei (CCPO) has deployed ABB Ability Tekomar XPERT digital solution on its fleet of 55 container ships.

The Tekomar XPERT is expected to increase fuel efficiency and reduce the environmental footprint.

Tekomar XPERT features an easy-access web application interface and is designed to provide the user with a view into the engine performance across the fleet.

It identifies the required adjustments to reach the best engine performance and efficiency.

CCPO managing director Christoph Gessner said: “We are always looking to adopt the latest technological advances to minimise our environmental footprint. This is a key driver for us when procuring services and products.

“With Tekomar XPERT for fleet, through optimising our engine health, we can minimise costs and the environmental footprint, and in return, we can pass on these benefits to our customers.”

Tekomar XPERT smart engine performance diagnostics software was initially released in 2015.

The software’s web application was launched in June and delivered to CCPO last month. The package included additional e-learning, fleet administration and several access levels functionality.

ABB Turbocharging Tekomar head Beat Güttinger said: “We are continuously looking to improve our offerings to more advanced solutions and supporting our customers to differentiate themselves in the market.

“Our longstanding positive relationship with CCPO, being an early adopter of our latest web application on CCPO’s entire fleet, demonstrates their confidence in ABB’s ability to deliver innovative solutions to the market.”

The subscription-based Tekomar XPERT has equipped more than 1,500 vessels so far.
