Servowatch, a leading supplier of advanced integrated ship control systems, was very proud to have been selected to supply the UK Royal Navy with its world class Integrated Platform Management Systems (IPMS) for the recently commissioned Batch II River Class OPV’s.
A routine maintenance window for HMS Forth scheduled whilst the vessel was deployed in the Falkland Islands did not deter Servowatch’s highly trained field service engineers. The engineer was duly dispatched and attended the vessel successfully.
Lt Garry Storey RN, the ships Marine Engineering Officer said, “The [Servowatch] engineer was brilliant ……. he explained what he was doing to the team very proficiently, maintained the system and assisted in building the crews knowledge to a higher standard”.
“With military vessels increasing in complexity and simultaneously reducing crew sizes, reliable and accurate integration is key to ensuring the functionality of critical components. Here at Servowatch, we are ready and able to support our customers no matter where they are in the world and we were happy to rise the challenge of supporting the Royal Navy on deployment for this routine maintenance call,” says: Wayne Ross, CEO, Servowatch Systems Limited.
