RENK condition monitoring for optimized availability, scheduling and cost reduction

RENK condition monitoring for optimized availability, scheduling and cost reduction

Condition monitoring provides ship operators with valuable data on the condition of the ship and establishes the basis for informed decisions on planning maintenance measures and ordering spare parts in good time. This can significantly improve the utilization and thus the profitability of the ship.

  • Maximum availability through preventive measures to avoid unplanned downtime and longer repair times
  • Optimized life cycle costs through intelligent spare parts and maintenance management
  • Maximum empowerment of field service staff and targeted use of them

Maximizing a vessel's uptime by avoiding unplanned and extended repair times

Condition monitoring helps identify potential problems before they become serious and costly, reducing risks and downtime. By using automated and remotely monitored systems, ship operators can identify potential maintenance problems in advance and while the ship is still underway. 

With these insights, they can plan the right maintenance activities in the most efficient way, thereby increasing the punctuality or number of tours of the ships.

01 ConSUlting & Design

Designing and system setup is the foundation of condition monitoring.

Do you need a condition monitoring solution for your ship? We identify your requirements and develop an appropriate sensor concept tailored to your needs. Next, we place our sensor technology and set up the RVM, our own condition monitoring solution. After extensive functional tests, the system is put into operation at your site and fine-tuned after a few months in operation.

Our project approach
  1. Identification of customer's requirements and characteristics of the ship to be monitored
  2. Definition of the sensor concept
  3. Placement of sensors and cabling
  4. System testing during factory acceptance test
  5. Installation at customer site and sea acceptance test
  6. Precise adjustment of software after approximately 3 month
02 The RENK Vibration Monitor (RVM)

Flexible, smart and easy to use software for condition monitoring

Besides a proper setup of sensor arrays, the heart of a CM system is the software application. With years of experience in the field and also from our test stands, we have developed and offer the RENK Vibration Monitor (RVM).

With the RVM software solution various sensors in technology and numbers can be easily integrated. And with the proven intelligence, algorithms and data records a thorough analyze of the systems conditions is available. By this ship operators obtain actionable insights to schedule measures in an early phase.

Our proven RVM software makes condition monitoring as easy as it gets.

Highest flexibility via simple system integration, modularity, intelligence as an intuitive interface are key values for our customers.

03 Proactive Monitoring and Reporting Service

Our experts can closely monitor the behavior of your drive train.

Our engineers proactively monitor your propulsion system for active prevention of damage by intervention in time. Based on their many years of experience with different systems, irregularities can be detected at the earliest possible stage and consequential damage can be avoided. They get immediately in contact with you in the event of anomalies. 

In addition we provide you with reports on the current health status of your system in a defined period of time. These reports outline recommendations of proper actions and maintenance work and gives a clear summary of your current machine condition.

Whether you transfer your data to RENK in an automated way or store it locally on your premises does not matter. Data can also be analyzed sequentially by the RENK vibration experts.

04 Onsite and virtual trainings

Broad training offer to support your operators to get the most out of condition monitoring abilities

RENK's training courses on condition monitoring and RVM will enable your employees to learn how RVM works, as well as to interpret data and use the software tools for troubleshooting in a targeted manner. In this way, your employees can gain access to OEM expertise of RENK and participate from it.

The trainings can take place at RENK or at your site and can be tailored to your needs. This ensures that your employees are ideally prepared for your system.
