MOL First to Use ClassNK Engine Monitoring System

Japanese shipping company Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) has introduced ClassNK Consulting Service’s condition-based monitoring (CBM) system ClassNK CMAXS e-GICSX on its newbuild M/V Taranaki Sun, marking the system’s first commercial use. 

The company selected the system for the 50,000 dwt tanker in order to reduce maintenance costs through the early detection of abnormalities and determine optimum timing of parts replacement.

ClassNK CMAXS e-GICSX is a next generation CBM system that collects large amounts of voyage data,  including weather and sea conditions, and machinery data collected from multiple sensors installed on electronically controlled main diesel engine. It analyses correlations between the data to detect engine abnormalities and provides troubleshooting based on these results.

In October 2015, MOL started with demonstration tests of the new engine monitoring system.

The 2016-built Taranaki Sun features a length of 186 meters and a width of 32.23 meters.

Taranaki Sun is one of the seven methanol-powered tankers ordered by MOL at Minaminippon Shipbuilding in mid-2015.
