Replacement engine management system for St Faith ferry for Wightlink Ferries

Replacement of engine management system for Wightlink Ferries

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.

Toby Grundon, Director at Grundon Marine, said:

“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.”
