ABB has been awarded a National Individual Standing Offer (NISO) to provide full-scope services for equipment installed on board Canadian Coast Guard (CCG) vessels, reducing maintenance costs and increasing uptime. The NISO covers the full range of remote diagnostics and global technical support, cyber security, condition monitoring, spare parts, operational reviews, preventive maintenance and drydocking services.

Full visibility on through-life service is expected to reduce overall maintenance costs, while the advance planning will maximize vessel uptime and timeliness for drydocking.

“With far more coastline to patrol than any other coast guard, often in the harshest of conditions, the CCG is exactly the type of customer which can benefit most from including selection of services in a comprehensive package,” said Jyri Jusslin, Head of Service, ABB Marine & Ports. “We are honored to have been chosen to support the smooth-running of vessels operated by one of the leading coastguard organizations in the world.”

Through the ABB approach, ABB is committed to be a trusted service provider – to support customer asset management and maintenance planning with continuous diagnostics, as well as annual inspections and fine-tuning services. The NISO also covers customized technical studies, onboard surveys and engineering support. The proactive approach extends to crew training, where ABB guidance can further minimize the occurrence of failures and downtime duration.

ABB’s services will cover ABB technology installed on board CCG’s icebreakers, search & rescue vessels, fishery science, ocean science and specialty ships. Among these ships are four medium icebreakers and six light icebreakers and buoy tenders.

ABB services included in the NISO were tailored to the specific needs of CCS’s vessels. ABB service agreements are applicable across a range of segments with fully customizable packages based on the critical aspects of a customers’ operations. Having all services under one agreement gives shipowners and operators the benefits of cost predictability, better planning and risk management. Regardless of vessel type or operating profile, comprehensive service agreements can increase ship uptime and lifespan, as well as improving safety, security and sustainability by optimizing operations.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
