Yanmar Adds Selective Catalytic Reduction System Connectivity for Marine Engines

Yanmar Power Technology Co., Ltd. (YPT), a Yanmar Holdings Co., Ltd. group company, will begin offering its exclusive Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR)*1 exhaust gas purification system with connected functionality and a dedicated management app in May.

Ships at sea generally do not have a well-developed IT environment, and reducing the time spent on onboard management can be a challenge. YPT strives to improve onboard efficiency by developing a system that provides connectivity using smartphones.

The control panel of the SCR system developed by YPT has a USB port allowing it to be connected to a smartphone, allowing the on-board information to be stored in the cloud via a dedicated application. The app also allows you to check performance diagnostic results and maintenance timing notifications, even in on-board environments without internet access.

Yanmar promotes the implementation of this system to reduce the time that crews have to spend on vessel management through the use of ICT and by proposing appropriate maintenance according to actual conditions of use, for safe navigation of vessels. seas.

In response to the demand for compliance with emissions regulations, this SCR system control panel provides engine and SCR system management in one package to comply with NOx emissions regulations. Additionally, the SCR system control panel can store system operating data in the cloud by connecting a smartphone to the system via a USB port on the control panel, allowing centralized management of performance diagnostic data.

When a smartphone with the dedicated app “YANMAR SHIPSWEB SMART-LINK”*2 installed is connected to the system, it will link to the operating data including engine data. Then when the system is online, it will connect to “YANMAR SHIPSWEB” cloud service provided by Yanmar Engineering Co.

Even in an offline environment, the app can access stored performance diagnostic data and periodic maintenance notifications can be received, allowing parts and maintenance to be arranged in advance, enabling planning stable operations.
