Royston appoints Indonesia agent to boost international enginei sales

Marine engineering and propulsion specialist Royston has appointed PT Rasaki Mitra Internusa as the new Indonesia agent for its enginei electronic fuel management system (EFMS).

Under the arrangement, the Jakarta-based maritime equipment supplier and service support specialist will be responsible for providing enginei sales and aftermarket technical support to the marine sector operating across the local region.

The move comes as Royston continues to develop strong EFMS sales to global marine owners and operators looking for a competitive advantage, while safeguarding compliance with IOC requirements and aiding vessel performance in an evolving environmental legislative landscape.

There are currently over 300 vessels, including OSVs such as anchor handlers, jack ups, PSVs and crew boats operating in the UK, Europe, Asia, North Africa, West Africa, North and South America and the Middle East, using the enginei system.

Offering comprehensive, user-friendly fuel data analysis and reporting options, enginei is an advanced fuel monitoring system installed as part of a comprehensive suite of digital marine technologies, designed to offer enhanced long-term operational efficiency and performance.

It uses flowmeters and sensors to accurately monitor the fuel being consumed by a vessel’s engines. The data is collected, processed and relayed to bridge and engine room-mounted touchscreen monitors to enable the ship’s master to adjust vessel speed and take whatever other action needed to reduce fuel consumption.

Royston and Rasaki both have strong relationships with marine vessel and fleet owners and operators and will be leveraging their expertise and skills to secure additional market share and sector reach.

Alexis Nyeo, area manager (APAC) at enginei, said Rasaki’s in-depth knowledge of the APAC market and experience in supplying and supporting advanced marine technologies makes them an ideal partner.

“They will be representing a very beneficial, competitive and capable added value solution in enginei. Through Rasaki, we will be able to extend our commercial reach and presence in a strong market, generating new sales and growth for both companies.”

Mr Enrille, managing director at PT Rasaki Mitra Internusa, said: “Our appointment boosts our commercial ambitions to become one of the foremost leading suppliers of advanced control system technologies in Indonesia. The move will bring considerable benefits as we share with Royston a commitment to engineering expertise alongside service, excellence and quality.”

  • Fuel choice the essential decision in shipping's decarbonisation, finds DNV GL

    DNV GL – Maritime has released the fourth edition of its Maritime Forecast to 2050. The purpose of Maritime Forecast to 2050 is to enhance the ability of shipping stakeholders, especially shipowners, to navigate the technological, regulatory and market uncertainties in the industry, and set shipping on a pathway to decarbonisation. It is based on a library of 30 scenarios which project future fleet composition, energy use, fuel mix, and CO2 emissions to 2050. Sixteen different fuel types and 10 fuel technology systems are modelled in the report.

    “The grand challenge of our time is finding a pathway towards decarbonisation,” said Knut Ørbeck-Nilssen, CEO of DNV GL – Maritime. “Reducing GHG emissions is rapidly becoming the defining decision-making factor for the future of the shipping industry. The pressure to act decisively is mounting. Perfect is the enemy of good, and so we mustn’t wait for an ideal solution to arrive and risk making no progress at all. Using a wide range of scenarios involving different fuel types and technologies, and varying degrees of regulatory pressure, our new report helps to map a way forward, offering shipowners clear insights on how to meet the challenges and opportunities ahead.”

    The Maritime Forecast identifies the choice of fuel as the essential factor in decarbonising shipping. The industry is at the beginning of a transition phase, with many potential options emerging alongside conventional fuels. This increasingly diverse fuel environment means that engine and fuel choice now represent potential risks that could lead to a stranded asset. Factoring in the impacts of availability, prices and policy, on different fuels, makes the choice even more complex.

    To capture this complexity and help make this picture clearer the Maritime Forecast offers a wide range of scenarios, outlining the potential risks of a particular fuel choice. To make the ramifications concrete, alongside the pathways, the Maritime Forecast includes detailed analysis of a Panamax bulk carrier newbuilding. By stress testing technology decisions under the various pathways and scenarios, the Forecast presents potential performance and the carbon robustness of the various design choices.

    The 30 scenarios result in widely different outcomes for the fuel mix in the fleet. In the scenarios with no decarbonization ambitions, very low sulphur fuel oil, marine gas oil and LNG dominate. While under the decarbonization pathways, in 2050 a variety of carbon-neutral fuels holds between 60 per cent and 100 per cent market share.

    Under the decarbonisation scenarios it is hard to identify clear winners among the many different fuel options. Fossil LNG gains a significant share until regulations tighten in 2030 or 2040. Bio-MGO, e-MGO, bio-LNG and e-LNG emerge as drop-in fuels for existing ships. By 2050, E-ammonia, blue ammonia and bio-methanol frequently end up with a strong share of the market and are the most promising carbon-neutral fuels in the long run.

    A surprising result from the model is the relative limited uptake of hydrogen as a ship fuel, as a result of both the estimated price of the fuel and the investment costs for the engine and fuel systems. Hydrogen, however, plays an integral role as a building block in the production of several carbon-neutral fuels such as e-ammonia, blue ammonia and e-methanol, all of which gain significant uptake under the decarbonization pathways. It may also find niche applications in some vessel types, such as ferries and cruise vessels, as well as in specific regions where investments have been made into local production and distribution.

    The Maritime Forecast to 2050 is part of a suite of Energy Transition Outlook (ETO) reports produced by DNV GL. The ETO has designed, expanded and refined a model of the world’s energy system encompassing demand and supply of energy globally, and the use and exchange of energy between and within ten world regions.
