New ecospeed EFMS algorithm identifies optimum vessel speed for maximum fuel efficiency

Diesel power specialist Royston has developed a special ecospeed analysis capability as part of its enginei electronic fuel management system (EFMS) to enable ship operators to identify and maintain optimum vessel speeds for efficient fuel usage.


Devised with marine engineering specialists from Newcastle University, Royston has developed a new ecospeed algorithm based on speed modelling and an analysis of vessel operating data, correlating and synchronising information from different sensors installed on the vessel.


Ecospeed calculates a unique optimum performance profile for individual vessels by taking into account a range of shipping data including fuel use, speed and distance, as well as sea state, wind speed and current.


Next generation of vessel energy monitoring unveiled –

Owners of workboats, including tugs and offshore vessels, will be able to access energy management and engine control systems to lower costs using version 2 of Royston’s enginei fuel monitoring system when this is introduced during the next three months.

Royston said this is a “new generation of highly advanced interface and energy management technologies” and that it designed this upgraded system “to deliver significant performance improvement benefits for vessel operators”.

V2 enginei interface will enable tug operators to use Royston’s enginei for fuel monitoring, data analysis and reporting. Royston said V2 enginei “heralds a significant step forward in easy-to-use, seamless reporting capabilities.” read more

Royston Expansion Boosts Marine Engineering & Technology Development Capabilities

Royston Diesel Power has doubled the size of its UK engineering facilities to support continuing global growth in its marine engine service business and new technology development.

As part of a £0.5 million investment programme the company has opened an additional 15,000 sq. ft. (2,800 sq. m.) of engineering workshop premises alongside its existing headquarters on the banks of the River Tyne.

As well as increasing the company’s engine repair and maintenance capability, the new centre will also provide a focus for a range of other technical support functions. These will include the further product development of its successful enginei marine fuel management system alongside new R&D, product development and engine diagnostics support. read more


Demand grows for Royston fuel management system

SEPTEMBER 27, 2017 — Growing global demand for its advanced technology marine fuel monitoring system has prompted Newcastle upon Tyne, U.K., headquartered Royston Diesel Power to expand its dedicated support team for the system, which is called enginei.

The move comes after the recent installation of over 30 new enginei fuel optimization systems in Nigeria, primarily in offshore support vessels (OSVs) and pilot boats, in response to the growing requirement by the international oil majors that contracted vessels have accurate on-board fuel monitoring data systems installed  read more

Ship Repair Newsletter – Royston feature – see page 10

The latest enhancement to Royston’s advanced enginei fuel monitoring system, the tank monitoring module
features EFMS (Electronic Fuel Monitoring System) technology to provide real-time inventory measurement
capabilities. enginei accurately records data by monitoring bunker deliveries and individual engine
consumption, with the data presented on touch screen monitors installed on the bridge and in engine control
rooms. In addition, the system transmits the information from ship to shore, where it can be accessed
through a web dashboard with computer generated graphs and Google mapping to show an operational
profile of a vessel  read more


MRV: Get On Board With Advanced Fuel Management Technology

The EU MRV regulation moves a step closer in August 2017 when vessel operators will be required to have their monitoring plans in place. Damian McCann, Product Manager at Royston, considers the implications and technology to help marine vessel owners and operators comply.


The EU MRV (monitoring, reporting and verification) regulation came into force in July 2015 and is designed to cut marine vessel CO2 emissions through the enhanced capture and collection of data. (more…)
