HEINZMANN Product Innovations at SMM 2016
Press Release (August, 2016)
The HEINZMANN Group offers a comprehensive range of propulsion control, engine control and automation systems for ships. For decades, the group’s member companies have supplied the shipping industry, offering standard solutions as well as fully customised development projects. Recognised for their excellent quality and reliability, HEINZMANN products and systems are certified for use in ships as a matter-of-course by well-respected classification societies. At this year's SMM trade fair for the shipping industry, HEINZMANN will be exhibiting its portfolio for the marine industry on two stands, each displaying a different range of products and systems.
Stand 108 / Hall A3: prime movers and propulsion systems
The replacement of an existing conventional diesel fuel injection system by a proven Common Rail retrofit kit (image 1) provides both a remarkable reduction in fuel consumption and lower emissions. For larger marine engines short payback times can be achieved. HEINZMANN supplies turnkey solutions including the CR conversion system, installation, commissioning and full lifetime service. A comprehensive engine upgrade can be presented to the visitor.
For medium-sized marine engines up to 350 kW/cyl. HEINZMANN offers an extension kit for conventional diesel fuel injection systems which provides precise injection timing over the entire engine operating range. E-PPN stands for electronically controlled extension for mechanical Pump-Pipe-Nozzle fuel injection systems. It is based on a high-pressure fuel valve that enables parameterisation of the beginning of injection, the injection quantity as well as cylinder balancing depending on engine speed and load. As a very cost effective add-on system, a clear reduction in fuel consumption and emissions can be achieved.
Gas dosing on engines with gas mixers usually tends to be slow and allows only limited influence on control. Gas admission valves enhance the capabilities of gas dosing considerably. HEINZMANN offers the optimum solution by presenting their new electrically actuated gas admission valve MEGASOL 200 II Marine . It is applicable for marine gas and dual-fuel engines up to 250 kW/cyl. The double-walled design complies with standards of international marine classification societies.
HEINZMANN Group member Regulateurs Europa BV present their latest developments in digital and hydraulic governors and hydraulic actuators, one of which is the microprocessor controlled hydraulic governor DG 2800.14. It can be used on diesel, gas or dual-fuel engines and steam turbines. DG 2800.14 consists of the well proven RE 2800 series actuator and the HEINZMANN digital DC 14 governor.
Stand 504 / Hall B6: Integrated alarm monitoring and control systems
The SeaMACS Integrated Automations Systems (IAS) by HEINZMANN DATA PROCESS is well-suited both for retrofit and for new ships. It is a well-established scalable system for the monitoring of vessel machinery and associated equipment. The system can easily be integrated and customised as it works together with equipment from most suppliers on the market. The HEINZMANN Group delivers complete systems for alarm, monitoring, power management, propulsion control, etc.
FuelMACS by HEINZMANN DATA PROCESS is a fuel performance system which assists the ship-owner to fulfil the IMO requirements for developing a Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP). The system can be used at the same time with the same data, not only on-board but also onshore by the shipping company. Several vessels can be monitored and compared at the same time with the same tool. This allows for ship owners to compare the fuel performance between different vessels, both based on instant values and previous values. The main purpose of the system is reduction of fuel consumption.
A recent product from the REGULATEURS EUROPA stable, Trino is a condition based monitoring system for critical rotating equipment using continuous vibration monitoring to identify early signs of wear and potential failure. Trino is a means of protecting critical equipment from the high costs associated with unexpected failures during service. Typical use is on turbochargers, generators, large pumps and gearboxes. A local display screen not only gives a clear signalling of pre and main alarm levels being breached, but also delivers an initial diagnosis of the cause of alarm upon which the local engineer can then decide upon a suitable course of action. Also offered is a remote monitoring option whereby alarms and daily data can be transmitted, either to RE specialist vibration analysts or your own source of qualified advice.
