Posted October 24, 2018 07:18:31 A major overhaul of the marine engine is set to begin in 2019 with the start of a series of major upgrades in the UK.
The UK Marine Engineering Corporation (MEC) announced the commencement of a major overhaul on Friday.
The Marine Engine Governor (MEG) will replace the current EICAS (Emergency Engine Incentive System) system.
The MEG will be an upgrade of the current Marine Engine Govs (MEGA), which is the engine that powers the world’s largest fleet of deep sea fishing vessels, including the Aquarius and Aquila.
In addition, the MEG’s modular design will allow for a variety of different power configurations.
The system is a combination of three main components, the engine, the regulator and the generator.MEG said the new system will be able to withstand the demands of a variety to the fleet.
“This new system is the result of the best minds in the industry working together to bring the best possible solution to the industry,” said MEG Chief Executive and General Manager, Mike O’Brien.
“The MEGA has been proven to deliver the highest performance and reliability for more than 30 years.
We are looking forward to making this a reality by 2020.”
The new MEG is expected to be available to customers by 2023.
MEG is also upgrading the diesel fuel system of the Aquila to a diesel type.
The diesel fuel is designed to deliver greater fuel efficiency, which is critical for the Aqualia fleet.
The company is also making other significant changes to the Aquara.
For example, the Aquarian will be fitted with a new, multi-functional oxygen sensor.
This is designed so that it can detect and report oxygen levels to the crew of the vessel.
Other improvements to the current Aquaria include the introduction of new, dual-fueling engines, an all-new propulsion system, and an enhanced maintenance system.
