METIS Cyberspace Technology has introduced “Live Dashboards” to provide online monitoring and performance evaluation for scrubbers, ballast water management systems (BWMS), main engines (M/E), diesel generators (DGs), and boilers.

METIS says that one of the most persistent requests it receives from its customers as well as executives in shipping companies is to provide the ability of a live overview for the operational status and the performance of the critical machinery equipment onboard, in an easy and functional way.

METIS’ new “Live Dashboards” provide a comprehensive overview of the operational status and the performance for the last 24 hours. All crucial information is placed in one place for easy access and convenience, enabling shipping companies to be on top of their business, act promptly and make justified decisions.

The data are obtained without any human intervention, through the LR type-approved data acquisition system developed by METIS. The platform then analyses the data on the fly and provides all required metrics and KPIs presenting them through a set of live, interactive and visually rich dashboards for each equipment separately. Moreover, customised alerts can be configured in order to provide notifications for critical events.

METIS also records all system parameters from the scrubber’s BWT control unit and evaluates the performance according to IMO requirements ensuring regulatory compliance and enabling performance evaluation at a glance.

Regarding the M/E, and the DG’s the system provides valuable information such as: variation of operating & performance parameters versus time, comparison  with reference condition (i.e. shop tests and/or sea trials) as well as ISO Correction for specific parameters (such as specific fuel oil consumption, exhaust gas temperatures etc.).
