Control, instrumentation and electrical engineering specialist CMR UK, working alongside new sales agent Royston Diesel Power, has identified numerous and ‘significant’ marine and power generation opportunities. 
 
First fruits of the partnership include the supply of exhaust gas temperature monitoring units, temperature and pressure sensors, wiring harnesses and marine telephones for end-users of GE, Caterpillar, Ruston and Mirrlees engines.
 
The move also paves the way for a wave of vessel automation projects and a potential new development program around the integration of the CMR Integrated Alarm Monitoring and Control System (IAMCS) technology featuring Royston’s enginei remote monitoring system. 
 
Royston is offering CMR’s IAMCS vessel automation system to support marine owners and operators with both retrofit and new build requirements. 
 
This approach, which balances technology with cost-effectiveness, is delivering significant benefits including improved connectivity through easy open integration with on-board systems, and a modular cost effective build that delivers a return on investment.
 
Easy configuration, even without a detailed specification, and system scalability to provide future proof and extendable lifecycles are further advantages of a partnership that also provides global dealer coverage to support international marine fleets.
 
Based on the powerful and extendible CLARINUXTM platform CMR’s vessel automation systems are marine classified by the leading societies including Lloyd’s Register, Det Norske Veritas, Nippon Kaiji, Bureau Veritas, Regristo Italiano Navale, Russian Register and American Bureau of Shipping.
 
As an authorized sales representative for CMR’s range of engine control systems, wiring harnesses, instrumentation and sensors, Royston provides sales, spares and aftermarket support across CMR’s marine, power generation, industrial and oil and gas markets. 
 
The move by the two companies is the first initiative of a program of work to develop new sales opportunities for CMR products and technology in the U.K., Australia and Africa particularly for marine diesel and gas engines. 
 
Ian Hamilton, sales manager at CMR UK, said, “We are very excited about how the partnership with Royston is unfolding following product and integration training at our Marseille head office during 2016.
 
“We are now looking at significant opportunities for marine vessel automation and monitoring applications, which we can support with our extensive system expertise, service support and fast-track commissioning capability.”
 
Shervin Younessi, technical manager at Royston, added, “Training sessions have provided us with a very good understanding of the detailed technical aspects of the CLARINUX platform and opened up integration possibilities with enginei. 
 
“We are very enthusiastic about the future developments of both platforms and believe this partnership can give us the opportunity to release successful monitoring products into the market.”
