A Sea Change with Data: Royal IHC Equips Its Vessels with the PI System to Boost Efficiency & Customer Trust
Royal IHC manufactures and sells marine engineering equipment like hopper and backhoe dredgers. Its vessels operate in wind-swept remote seascapes
far beyond network range, making it hard to maintain oversight of operations and ensure overall equipment effectiveness (OEE). Because of the high cost
of running such equipment in remote environments, Royal IHC needed a fleetwide monitoring platform that would provide valuable data about how its vessels
are operating to help its customers optimize equipment performance. When the company found out that a customer was equipping their dredgers with
data-analytics capabilities using the PI System, they saw an opportunity for a new data-driven service.
