Royston Diesel Power reports that Penguin International Ltd - the Singapore-based designer and operator of aluminium workboats - has ordered 16 of its Enginei electronic fuel management system (EFMS) units for a range of new specialist maritime security vessels and multi-role crew boats.

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.

The Enginei systems are being supplied by Royston's local distributors for the Malaya region, CAN Traders and Service Pte. Ltd.

The units, which include Coriolis meters for the main engines and generators, are being installed as part of a comprehensive suite of advanced digital marine technologies, designed to offer enhanced long-term operational safety and efficiency performance.

Greater integration of advanced real-time information tools will be expected to contribute to reducing fuel and operational costs, enabling both the crews and vessel operators to have access to detailed real-time engine performance and other mission-critical information.

Enginei's sensor technology has been specified to accurately monitor engine fuel consumption, which will be tracked against GPS data, voyage details and operational mode.

The data is collected, processed and relayed to bridge and engine room-mounted touchscreen monitors to enable the vessel's master to adjust vessel speed and take whatever other actions are needed to reduce fuel consumption.

Penguin Group's managing director, James Tham, said: "After extensive evaluation, we decided to spec Enginei into our security boats and crew boats as a well-balanced EFMS solution for our owners."

Installation of the Enginei units is being carried out by Penguin's own team of engineers, while CAN Traders is overseeing the commissioning work.

Sean O'Neill, Royston's regional sales manager, noted that the optimisation of fuel use and the minimisation of emissions is an increasingly important issue in the international marine sector.

"We are seeing a lot of interest in our technology from global builders and operators who want to achieve measurable operational and cost savings for their vessels," he said.

According to Royston, Enginei EFMS is compatible with all marine engine types and can be interfaced with newbuild engine installations or retrofitted to operating vessel. Bunker monitoring applications are also available.
