Automation systems

The latest Rolls-Royce integrated automation systems are designed to control and monitor ship operational systems in a robust, flexible, modern and reliable ship environment.

Systems are available for sailing vessels through bespoke upgrade packages. Upgrades can be supplied as a complete integrated system or as separate systems, including alarm and monitoring, tank sounding, and pump and valve control, depending on the requirements of the vessel. In addition, systems can be configured to interface with systems supplied by 3rd parties.

Each solution is custom-made to a vessel’s operating profile, with a graphical user interface displaying all necessary information to facilitate operation of the systems.
