ZAZZ Engineering's ATC's touch interface, for engine room ventilation control, was conceived from the start to have vibrant graphics, intuitive design and the look and feel of easy-to-use, touch-based consumer electronics. The ATC (Automated Touch Control) automatically controls engine room ventilation monitoring inside and outside temperature, fan speed and engine room pressure. Powered by an integrated 24V DC supply, the ATC touch interface is equipped with an Ethernet Port for easy connection to the CPU. Available in two standard screen sizes, 8.4" and 10.4” other sizes are available. ZAZZ Engineering’s, George MacDonald says, “Todays engine room ventilation is becoming more and more sophisticated, our engineering department, works with the architect, designer, shipyard or builder to design the best possible ventilation solution for the engine room, at no charge.” For more information visit their website at www.zazzeng.com
Transas Marine has released a new simulator product, which is a stand-alone Engine Room simulator, ERS Solo. This simulator broadens the company's existing product range of Engine Room simulators, which includes the PC-based ERS 2000 and the ERS 3000, which is fitted with real engine control room panels for monitoring and control of engine room machinery.

If there was a worldwide competition for the most immaculate engine room, it might very well be won by an engine room from the Netherlands. In fact it might even belong to Mr. and Mrs. Van der Stelt whose new vessel, Mon Desir, transports coal along the river system from the German Ruhrgebiet. The 443 ft long hull of the ship was built near the mouth of the Volga River in the JSC 3d International Shipyard in Astrakan Russia

“Lessons are still not being learned when it comes to preventing engine room fires.” This is the message from Graeme Temple, Regional Director for Braemar SA’s Far East operations, following a review of incidents taking place in 2013. “Last year we attended a significant number of engine-room fires - the industry is still experiencing far too many unnecessary casualties where flammable liquids in engine rooms are finding their way onto hot spots,” he said
Transas Marine International in cooperation with its local distributor Radio Holland South Africa has recently installed a new engine room simulator at Durban University of Technology (DUT) Department of Maritime Studies, South Africa.

Engine room crew of DFDS ship 'Petunia Seaways' reduce bunker consumption, enter company's fuel saving competition. North European ferry operator DFDS has said in an internal newsletter that its engine room crews across the fleet are: "...all extremely focused on saving fuel by testing new and creative ideas and they are never satisfied with what they have achieved, but always looking for further improvements."
Circulation of dry, cool air is critical for engine performance, longevity and safety. Delta "T" Systems said it offers a single comprehensive source for all the components that make up an engineered system. Effective marine ventilation requires more than just fans to promote air flow. Equally important in maintaining an optimal engine room environment, moisture eliminators maintain the dry conditions that motors demand, while dampers provide an all-important safety mechanism
First introduced last March, Holland America and Fincantieri announced to the cruise shipping community that it had signed a contract to construct one of the world's most innovative vessel series that would incorporate keen interior designs, as well as the most up-to-date safety and technical features.
