A data-driven condition monitoring approach for the main bearings of a marine diesel engine
The Royal Netherlands Navy (RNLN) explores data-driven maintenance opportunities as part of the Sailplan 2030 and Defence Vision 2035. Part of that exploration is performing different case studies, in which Monitoring & Control data from the IPMS-system of the Holland class is analysed. This research focuses on the early detection of defective main bearings of the main diesel engines. This creates opportunities to make maintenance decisions that prevent failures, resulting in an increased reliability.
