Megasystems To Supply Monitoring Equipment For 8 Oceangoing Tugs

Megasystems, Inc., manufacturers and designers of marine instrumentation and control systems, has been selected to provide the ABS ACCU monitoring and generator controls for eight oceangoing tractor tugs to be built by Omni F a b r i c a t o r s of Port Brownsville, Texas. The tugboats will be owned and operated by Faustug of California.

The first two vessels will be equipped with twin EMD power plants and will be fitted with Nigata Z-pellers. The remaining six in the series will be equipped with B&W heavy fuel burning engines.

The Megasystems' equipment will feature LED digital displays driven by a marine-proven micro- processor. "This will allow a natural expansion in the future to add automatic data-logging, additional monitoring parameters or remote units. Special engine diagnostics could also be incorporated when the customer is ready," said C. Tsipouras, vice president of Megasystems.

These units mark the introduction of Megasystems into the small boat market. The company has primarily been engaged in fitting systems on larger oceangoing vessels since 1975.
