Demand grows for Royston fuel management systemWritten by Nick Blenkey
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.
This takes the total number of enginei installations completed in Nigeria to over 80 in the last couple of years.
As well as encouraging better emissions control and vessel operational efficiencies, the system also incorporates the automatic monitoring of bunkering activity, fuel inventory and consumption data to protect against fuel security issues.
The specialist enginei support team now brings together marine, mechanical engineering, data analysis and software development experts. A local sales unit has also been established, and the company has also expanded its system build, test, installation and commissioning capabilities, as well as the technical support available to customers.
The team also incorporates a specialist software development unit that is focusing on the introduction of new digital systems to monitor and manage complete vessel performance, energy use and emissions.
The team has already developed a new software-based system that automatically detects a vessel’s operational mode and similar work is underway on new digital systems for emissions monitoring and compliance with environmental performance.
Damian McCann, product manager for the fuel management systems, explains: “With vessel performance measurement, reporting and verification issues very much at the top of the marine agenda, our advanced enginei fuel management system is attracting considerable global interest.
“The expansion of our team will ensure that we can both respond effectively to current demand and also continue to develop and enhance the enginei system capability to meet the constantly evolving needs of the international marine sector.”
