The latest version of the enginei electronic fuel management system (EFMS) from Royston diesel power, has been specified for Tarmac’s Marine business’ City of Westminster aggregate dredger.
The vessel is one of a four-strong fleet of gravel and sand dredgers, which operate mainly in the North Sea and English Channel, supplying Tarmac’s aggregate processing plants on the River Thames and in Southampton.
The company is currently rolling out the latest version of enginei across its dredger fleet to provide enhanced fuel monitoring and reporting capabilities.
Royston diesel power has appointed a new agent for Malaysia, strengthening its presence in the electronic fuel management systems market (EFMS).
Kuala Lumpar-based Time Marine, a Petronas licensed vendor, will be responsible for developing business for enginei EFMS across the south east Asian region under the new agreement, which will include aftermarket sales and technical support.
The move will also see Time supporting enginei at several events and seminars in 2019 in Malaysia to showcase the technology’s benefits to existing and potential customers.
enginei will be showcasing new developments for 2018, including Vessel Energy Monitoring (VEM), on its stand 2855 at the International Workboat Show.
VEM technology, which provides information about a vessel’s architecture and energy levels, as well as efficiency improvement recommendations, is part of Royston’s enginei product, which delivers cost savings and operational efficiencies for offshore vessel and workboat operators.
The system records fuel consumption data from bunkers and individual engines, with data provided onboard and onshore. The system transfers data from ship-to-shore, where its accessible via a web dashboard and GPS mapping to show a vessel’s full operational profile and to enable maximum operating efficiencies to be maintained.
Royston Diesel Power’s advanced enginei EFMS (electronic fuel management system) has been specified for a range of new specialist maritime security vessels and multi-role crew boats.
The move will see 16 enginei units supplied to Penguin International Limited, the Singapore-based designer and operator of aluminium workboats.
Penguin, the world’s largest builder of mid-sized crew boats, is building several of its flagship Flex Fighter range of high-speed armoured security vessels for anti-piracy operations off the coast of Nigeria. New Flex-42X multi-role crew boats will also be destined for its own chartering operations in Southeast Asia.
Royston Diesel Power’s advanced enginei EFMS (electronic fuel management system) has been specified as part of the new build programme for the first dredging vessel commissioned in 20 years by CEMEX UK Marine.
The new £30m Damen Shipyards Group built CEMEX Go Innovation has been designed to extract sand and gravel from depths of up to 55m, including in the challenging conditions experienced in the North Sea.
Under construction at Damen Shipyards Galati, in Romania, the 100m long, 7,000 tonnes vessel will replace CEMEX’s Sand Heron, offering the capacity to deliver up to 20% extra load per trip.
CEMEX has opted for a cutting-edge vessel design, with the latest on-board safety, efficiency and environmental facilities and equipment as part of clear set of design requirements.
enginei will be installed as part of a comprehensive suite of advanced digital marine technologies, designed to offer enhanced long-term operational safety and efficiency performance.
Advanced fuel monitoring and energy management technology, designed to deliver significant cost benefits for vessel operators, will be among the key attractions on the Royston diesel power SMM stand (B1.0G.501).
Royston, an internationally based company operating in the global maritime sector for over 40 years, is an authorised representative for Niigata, GE, Yanmar, Volvo Penta, Scania, Napier Turbochargers.
With bases in the UK, Australia and West Africa, it works closely with customer fleets carrying out engine replacement or maintenance, repair and overhaul activities on the full range of diesel equipment – including genuine spares and expertise for Wartsila, Caterpillar and other engine types.
As an innovator in its market, the company has developed a range of engine monitoring systems and in particular, the enginei Electronic Fuel Management System, to enable shipping operators to control its fuel cost.
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.
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
Our Singapore distributor Can Traders, are showcasing enginei on their stand D-S10 pop along and speak with Sean O’Neill our Regional Sales Manager to hear the latest about our innovative product.
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
