Shell and Baker Hughes launche VitalyX

Shell BHGEShell has announced the launch of VitalyX, powered by Shell Remote Sense and Bently Nevada, a Baker Hughes business, as an intelligent, advanced analytics-based oil condition monitoring and machine health service for the marine sector

By deploying industrial internet of things (IIOT) and artificial intelligence (AI) technology in innovative ways, the service uses real-time sensor data and machine learning to provide customers with actionable insights to optimise equipment health, lower maintenance costs and increase operational efficiency of marine vessels.  

Shell Marine’s general manager services and technical, Marcus Schaerer, said, “Shell understands the importance of good lubricant management and its impact on equipment life. With Shell Remote Sense, ship owners and operators can continuously monitor oil conditions across multiple components on a vessel.”

“Customers will have vital and predictive information at their fingertips to make proactive decisions on maintenance planning and extend equipment life.”

Ed J Boufarah, vice-president, Bently Nevada, a Baker Hughes business, said, “Digitalisation is maturing rapidly in the marine sector, with the data drawn from real-time remote monitoring not only enhancing operations and improving safety, but also delivering significant efficiency gains.”

VitalyX provides operators with the predictive capability to optimise maintenance cost management, by switching from a time-based to a health-based approach. This partnership between Shell and Bently Nevada combines the best of our expertise, as we invest for growth to further advance digital transformation and industrial asset management.”
