Rolls-Royce showcased its complete mtu NautIQ marine automation portfolio for the first time at DSEI 2021 that concluded on Friday.
The new portfolio includes a range of both new and proven platform management and ship control systems for vessels of all kinds and sizes, including naval and commercial ships as well as leisure craft. The mtu NautIQ automation system family is designed for both new-build vessel systems and to enable easy retrofit of legacy systems on older vessels.
“With mtu NautIQ, we combine the advantages of our mtu technologies with those of Servowatch, the supplier of integrated marine automation solutions which we acquired in December 2020,” said Knut Müller, Vice President Global Governmental at Rolls-Royce business unit Power Systems. “We are now not only offering our customers reliable state-of-the-art automation solutions but complete lifecycle solutions from one trusted source through onboard data collection and analytics.”
mtu NautIQ Master is the newest generation of Rolls-Royce’s integrated platform management system (IPMS). The solution meets the complex automation and integration requirements of operators of modern specialized vessels. mtu NautIQ Master is a fully integrated turnkey automation solution that will replace the mtu Callosum system. It offers the same base functionalities as Callosum with enhanced features on a much more flexible and future-proof platform.
An important contribution to more sustainable and reliable vessel operations is mtu NautIQ Foresight, the new Equipment Health Management System (EHMS) from Rolls-Royce. It monitors the technical condition of a complete vessel from bridge to propeller, collecting and analysing data from mtu and third-party components. This enables predictive maintenance before a component fails and assists the ship’s crew to operate the vessel at peak efficiency.
The mtu NautIQ portfolio also includes solutions for the commercial and yacht application, such as the fully integrated bridge touchscreen-based solution mtu NautIQ Bridge and mtu NautIQ Genoline NG that enables the optimum operation of onboard power generation equipment.
