Grundon Marine has completed retrofit works to replace an engine management system onboard St Faith, a ferry for Wightlink Ferries in Southampton.
St Faith is the third-largest ship in the fleet for the Isle of Wight ferry company and was launched in February 1990. Originally installed with a Decca ISIS 250, the ageing engine room monitoring system had become unsuitable and unreliable for future service.
Our marine electronics engineers, Nathan Grundon and Joe Singleton, undertook the 7-day project to remove the old system and retrofit with a new Servowatch solution. Servowatch, a company acquired by Rolls-Royce in 2020, is a world-leading supplier of advanced integrated ship control systems.
“Our industry-leading knowledge and experience of Decca ISIS engine management systems enable us to upgrade vessels to the latest systems within existing infrastructure.
“Our focus is always on providing a professional service and completing works to the highest of standards. This project onboard St Faith is a good example of our expertise in retrofits.
“Wightlink Ferries were very happy with our service and the solution involving the new Servowatch system.”
