EGS commission and undertake sea trials for major ocean research vessel

30th April – 18th May 2012

The latest EGS developments across the departments.


Within last fortnight’s news we highlighted a controls upgrade project we have been working on for a major ocean research vessel consisting of a triple redundant electronic governing system made up of two 723 PLUS controls and two PGA-EGs.

Following the successful completion of testing on the project, Service Engineers Karl and Jon are completing the final installation on site with commission imminently due to take place.  We will then conduct sea trials at the end of the week. We are looking forward to having the project successfully completed for our customer and witnessing the improvements the newly installed system will produce.

In the meantime within the retrofit department, we have technician Kevin working on the cabinet for British Sugar which is due to be delivered to site next week.


This fortnight within the overhaul department we have a number of routine overhaul jobs such as an RE governor which we are overhauling on behalf of our agent covering the Middle East and Asia, Ian Skins.

We also have 12 Woodward UG governors coming for overhaul from the Far East in addition to an urgent UG40 actuator overhaul, which several members of our team are currently working on.

We also have engineer Mick overhauling two Ansaldo steam valves.


We are currently working with web design agency Cyber-Duck to design an E-shot, which we will send out to our customers on a monthly basis to update them of EGS news and offers. If you wish to sign up to receive this, please get in touch via our contact page or email
