Case Studies Governors & Actuators

Engine manufacturers, packagers and operators trust in REGULATEURS EUROPA governor technology.
RE governors and actuators are proven in many applications and on any type of engine. Please find
some examples below.

 

  • Wartsila 6L26A
  • Caterpillar 3606 DI-TA

Wartsila 6L26A

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.

Putford Archiver

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"

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.

Schiffsantrieb

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.
