Matthew Hirst, Engineering Superintendent of the Boston Putford Offshore Safety Ltd states:
"The Putford Achiever was fitted with Viking22 Governor systems controlling the Port and Stb'd Main Engines Wartsila 6L26A. We were informed though REGULATEURS EUROPA that these Viking22 where to shortly become obsolete and that the replacement for these units was the Viking35.
REGULATORS EUROPA were fully prepared for the installation and the process was carried out in the time frame and without problems. The installation personnel were very professional and competent, they explained what they needed from us and the set up went efficiently and smoothly.
After the initial set up the vessel was able to take a pilot and navigate out of dock and proceed down the river Humber with perfectly good control of the Main Engines. Further fine tuning of the system was carried out by the REGULATEURS EUROPA service engineer at sea and all the settings loaded and saved in the vessels Governors memory. We are delighted that the system has operated correctly since"
