Servowatch upgrades a Britannia Aggregates Ltd dredger

Servowatch performs another AMS mid-life upgrade, this time for Britannia Aggregates Ltd on Britannia Beaver


The selection by Britannia Aggregates Ltd of Servowatch’s ServoCoreTM Alarm & Monitoring Systems (AMS) to replace the aging ISIS system on their dredger, Britannia Beaver, marks the beginning of a new relationship. Servowatch designed and built a custom fitted replacement AMS and Servowatch’s Sales and Service partner, Grundon Marine, removed the old system and installed the new one. Servowatch commissioned the new AMS on time and in budget allowing the vessel to return to operational service as scheduled. This mid-life upgrade will ensure the vessel has minimal complications, ease of operation and supportability for many years to come.


Functionality and features of the system installed on the Britannia Beaver include: –


Local intelligent Data Acquisition Units

Graphical Operator Workstations

Local Operator Panels with Group Alarm Functionality

UMS Duty Engineer Alarm System

Patrolman Safety System

BV Approved Main Engine Protection / Shutdown Integration.

Data Logging and Trending Analysis

Dual Redundancy Networking


Servowatch has extensive knowledge of refitting engineered AMS replacement systems and together with Grundon Marine’s installlation expertise and tremendous support from the Britannia Beaver’s crew, both companies completed the installation with a minimal fuss and met the deadlines of the owners.


Servowatch’s CEO Wayne Ross says “It’s a pleasure to be selected as the AMS solution provider for Britannia Aggregates Britannia Beaver. The installation went as planned and we completed the work on schedule which I am sure will have pleased our customer”.


Britannia Aggregates Ltd General Manager, Nigel Reeve, says “the Servowatch AMS was delivered, installed and commissioned on time and the process was completed with no disruption to our service.  The ships crew and I are very happy with the support and assistance that the Servowatch team and their installation partners, Grundon Marine, provided”.


Owner of Grundon Marine, Toby Grundon commented “It was a pleasure to work on the Britannia Beaver project and to install the complete Servowatch system.
