Eliminating health and safety risks
Rolls-Royce orders second remote engine monitoring solution for elimination of engine room commissioning hazards.
Rolls-Royce's business unit Power Systems, provider of world-class mtu propulsion solution's to the marine market, has ordered second remote engine monitoring system for Reygar Ltd. Eliminating engine room health and safety risks during maritime engine commissioning and testing.
The remote engine technology enables engineers to operate outside the engine rooms during sea trials, cutting their exposure to the associated safety risks. Rolls-royce regards personal safety as a paramount concern. With the first system delivered back in 2021, it has been deployed successfully during more than half a dozen sea trials of yatchs and commercial vessels. The solution is vessel agnostic and fully customisable, with scope to support sea trials on a wide variety of vessels including ferries, pilot boats, tugs, workboats and crew transfer vessels.
Chris Huxley-Reynard, Managing Director, Reygar, said: “Rolls-Royce mission to remove its engineers from harm’s way presented both an interesting engineering challenge and a unique opportunity to create a safer environment for the seafarers and engineers essential to maritime trade.”
