Diesel power company Royston reports that its Enginei fuel management system is being installed on 25 vessels in Nigeria, with a similar number of additional installations planned for the coming months.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The Enginei system is being used for monitoring of bunkering and fuel consumption data to help identify and overcome fuel security and potential pilferage issues, the company says.

“Access to reliable fuel consumption data is taking on even greater importance for a wide range of fleet management and fuel security issues. Our upgraded Enginei fuel management system has attracted considerable interest from shipping operators in Nigeria, and we have responded by setting up special arrangements to ensure that all installations are carried out by our own skilled and experienced engineers,” said Damian McCann, product manager for fuel management systems at Royston.

“We take direct OEM responsibility for the installation and performance of the system - giving ship owners and operators the reassurance that specialist support will be provided for the entirety of a vessel’s working life or operational time in Nigeria.”

“In addition, our electrical engineers work closely with local fabricators to keep system installation rates competitive. We have installation coverage throughout Africa and are now working with many oil sector majors and fleet operators – with initial customer feedback already confirming that significant reductions in fuel consumption are being achieved.”

The Enginei system includes an onboard flowmeter and sensor system offering real-time engine and vessel performance measurements. Installation includes tamper proof armoured cables and a tamper prevention tape for flanges and electrical cabinets.

The data is presented on board via touchscreen monitors installed on the bridge and in engine control rooms. In addition, the system remotely sends the information from ship to shore where it can be accessed through a web dashboard to show an operational profile of a vessel.{/mprestriction}
