Distribution deal for US fuel management system

31 Jul 2010

Nautical Control Solutions (NCS) of Houston has announced that Honeywell Marine has become an official distributor of its FuelTrax marine fuel management system.

The onboard, ABS type-approved FuelTrax system along with the shore-side FuelNet web-based reporting tool is intended to improve the performance of vessels through tighter management controls, accurate fuel accountability, and optimised vessel operations. The system monitors fuel flow, captures fuel burn rates, and can measure fuel tank levels. It includes live wheelhouse monitoring to assist in making real-time engine speed adjustments that can help reduce fuel consumption. The system is used on over 120 deep-sea, coastal and inland vessels.

“The growing demand for accurate fuel monitoring and accounting prompted us to search for an industry leading solution to add to our portfolio”, said Philippe Despagne, managing director, Honeywell Marine. “The FuelTrax system uses advanced software, coupled with marine hardened electronics to provide a safe, reliable, and efficient platform for accurately measuring fuel usage during vessel operations and relaying key performance indicators to on-shore personnel. FuelTrax is an excellent addition to our existing tank management systems and will provide significant benefits to our customers.”

“We are very pleased to announce this new agreement with Honeywell,” said Anthony George, president of NCS. “Their marine products are well known throughout the industry and their reputation for quality field support services is important to us for maintaining high-levels of customer satisfaction. Our products complement each other’s well and the increased sales and services resources they provide support us in our continued growth worldwide. This combination provides a world-class solution at a time the industry needs every advantage it can get.”
