Condor Ferries

HSC Condor Rapide is one of Condor Ferries' high speed catamarans running regular services in the English Channel. Each of the 4 Ruston 20-cylinder RK270 engines were originally fitted with the now obsolete Viking22 based Propulsion Control Panels each driving an RE 2231 ballhead back up actuator.

REGULATEURS EUROPA designed, installed and commissioned a direct replacement upgrade incorporating their latest Viking35 digital control system offering continued and reliable service for the future.

The design of the new panels ensured that they would fit on the same mounting points as the old ones and retain the existing wiring making for a quick installation.

Seagoing vessel governor replacement

The seagoing vessel ARM22 Klaas Adriana is driven by a Caterpillar 3606 DI-TA engine. This engine is controlled by the 1100 series hydraulic governor from REGULATEURS EUROPA. The governor replaces the previously installed Woodward 3161 governor, which gave rise to increased maintenance costs and dysfunctions.

ARM 22 Klaas Adriana

The 1115 L is widely used in the marine sector and features an electric stepper motor as an actuator. The HEINZMANN stepper motor drive board differs from our competitor's equipment in that allows analogue or digital speed setting. The governor provides accurate speed control and responds rapidly to load or speed changes. Minimum and maximum speeds as well as the speed ramp rates can be programmed and adjusted easily on the stepper motor drive board.


The adjustable electric start fuel limiter prevents the engine from emitting excessive smoke when starting. A complete kit, which contains all necessary mounting materials and levers, is available to carry out the retrofit in as short as possible "down time" for the vessel.

System Upgrades for Catamaran Fast Ferries

Three Incat-built catamaran fast ferries operating in Japan, Taiwan and Denmark have been successfully upgraded to use the latest Viking35 and MVC products from REGULATEURS EUROPA and HEINZMANN for control of their four 20V28/33D (RK280) main propulsion engines.

Catamaran fast ferry

Each engine was originally supplied with three Viking25 EFI, MAA and DI modules and two Mecel/Hoerbiger Bank Controller Modules (BCMs) to support full engine control (with electronic fuel injection), alarm, monitoring and safety functionality. Viking25 modules were replaced with ‘same form fit and function’ Viking35 modules, and the Bank Controller Modules were replaced by a single Solenoid Driver Module (SDM) containing an MVC-01/20 unit.

RE Viking35

As the upgrade minimised changes to the physical system and its functionality, the crew could continue to operate and maintain the system with very little additional training. Additionally, most spare parts already held by the operators could continue to be used.
