G.R. Bowler, specialists in integration of Moore APACS Systems, completed an automation upgrade of the engine-room systems aboard the recently re-commissioned LNG/C Matthew. The vessel, originally El Paso Howard Boyd, was built in 1978 by Newport News Shipbuilding and had an obsolete, hardwired control systems. The requirement was to improve safety, reliability and ensure 20 years of serviceability for the new systems.

G.R. Bowler used ABS Type-approved, Moore APACS systems hardware and ProcessSuite HMI software. The new system includes control, monitoring, as well as alarm and data management functions for the main propulsion machinery and engine room auxiliaries. The operator interface employs more than 50 Windows NT® 4.0-based, graphic screens that can be displayed on any of the four, 20-inch color monitors.

The seamless architecture of control hardware and communications software render the systems ideally suited for the LNG vessel’s complex, dual-fuel strategies. The Matthew’s engineering officers have commented on the superior display graphics and the ease of adaptation and short learning curve for new officers may be attributed to the user-friendliness of the new systems.
