Engineering expansion at Royston
Royston Diesel Power has doubled the size of its UK engineering facilities to support its marine engine and technology growth.
As part of a GB£0.5m investment programme the UK-based company has opened an additional 2,800sqm of engineering workshop premises to increase the company’s engine repair and maintenance capability and provide a focus for other technical support functions, including further product development of its engine marine fuel management system alongside new R&D, product development and engine diagnostics support.
Sarah Wade, chief executive of Royston, said: “The new workshop premises will continue to support growing marine sector interest across all of our services and products. In particular, it will enable us to further strengthen and extend our technical capabilities, both in support of our marine sector OEM partners and also to respond to the increasingly intense shipping operator focus on improving vessel performance and fuel optimisation.”
To focus on the in-depth analysis of engine data for remote monitoring applications, the workshop has been equipped with new heavy lifting equipment, state of the art turbocharger balancing machinery, a range of diagnostic equipment including laser alignment, thermographic camera’s and heavy-duty cleaning machines for engine components.
Engine product development work will take place at the new workshop, including work with specialists at Newcastle University’s School of Marine Science & Technology on the use of innovative technology solutions to manage whole vessel energy flows to enable ships to run at optimum performance and within environmental rules.
