Kongsberg Digital is to add Shell’s LubeMonitor application to those it offers through its maritime applications database.
The development builds upon the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that the two companies signed last year with the aim of furthering their shared ambitions of supporting the maritime sector as it navigates the energy transition by accelerating decarbonisation initiatives. Shell’s LubeMonitor offers insights into a vessel’s engine condition by combining data from engine operating conditions, oil testing performed on board, laboratory results from the Shell LubeAnalyst service, and measurements and photos taken during engine inspections. This helps operators to make informed decisions about maintenance interventions and keep their vessels running reliably.
Kongsberg Digital’s vice president for maritime, Anders Bryhni, said that the two company’s cooperation:
“…expands the range of applications available to industry professionals on our marketplace and consolidates our collaboration with Shell. We are proud to work together with Shell, sharing a passion for digital innovation and commitment to decarbonisation. Offering Kongsberg Digital clients Shell’s LubeMonitor app is a testament to our close collaboration.”
Lubricant analysis can also be a great way to monitor the state of industrial lubricants like the Mobil Pegasus gas engine oil. Not only can it be used to inform decisions about when to change oil, it can also highlight potential failures before they have a chance to occur, thus minimising any unscheduled downtime.
At TrAchem, we supply lubricants from a wide range of brands, many of which offer lubricant analysis services. Speak with our helpful team to learn more.
