How VitalyX works
Make your data work harder
VitalyX is like a 24/7 health check for your marine equipment – your oil is constantly assessed and you receive an instant diagnosis and clear recommendations to prevent things going wrong or getting worse
Gathering raw data on oil and equipment.
Easy to install and integrate into existing systems, sensors provide real-time information that we use to deliver a clear picture of how your lubricants and machinery is performing.
30+ years of lubricant analysis expertise
Shell has accumulated a vast library of lubricant data based on hundreds of products delivered across thousands of applications. This constantly updated source of expertise is leveraged to generate our insights on oil condition and equipment health.
Analysis powered by AI and machine learning
The Shell Remote Sense Cloud uses the latest AI and machine learning technology to analyse sensor data. This includes asset benchmarking to calibrate our models, behaviour tracking to detect anomalies and oil property modelling to predict outcomes.
Insight on oil condition, contamination, remaining oil life
Insights and recommendations are generated through Shell Remote Sense advanced analytics. These clear recommendations are delivered to the operations and maintenance team through a user-friendly interface.
