Case study: Shanghai Ming Wah

Tekomer Xpert delivers 
fleetwide fuel savings

The challenge

Shanghai-based shop management platform Shanghai Min Wah Shipping Co. wanted to embrace digital technologies for greater fuel and management efficiency.

The solution

ABB installed its state-of-the-art engine diagnostics software ABB Ability™ Tekomar XPERT across 12 of Shanghai Ming Wah’s bulk carriers, allowing them to monitor and optimise engine performance.

Tekomar XPERT software is compatible with any engine, regardless of type or age, making it ideal for larger fleets with a variety of vessels.

ABB also became Shanghai Ming Wah’s trusted partner and offered assistance in the form of a rapid response helpline and technical expertise.

The result

Under the initial order, ABB Ability™ Tekomar XPERT helped Shanghai Ming Wah save 0.62 tons of fuel per day on four ships. One vessel with a MAN B&W 6S42MC main engine recorded a fuel saving of 4.3g/kWh, highlighting the significant fuel consumption advantages the software can bring to high-powered engines in particular.

Lower fuel usage will lead to dramatic improvements in environmental performance, reducing fleetwide CO2 emissions by an anticipated 5,800 tons a year.

  • 0.62 TONS OF FUEL SAVED PER DAY
  • 5800 TONS OF CO2 SAVED PER YEAR
