New order for popular autopilot

Furetank, located on the Swedish island of Donsö, has used EMRI autopilots for a number of ships in the past. Now, with a new range of ships coming up, Furetank looks to EMRI again for an autopilot that is perfect for navigating through the narrow seaways of the Nordic countries, characterised by the archipelago, and the challenging coastlines around the entire North European countries

Herlev, July 10 2017 – Furetank is about to delivery their newest generation of environment friendly product and chemical tankers, which are intended to sail in the waters surrounding Sweden. Especially the archipelagos are difficult to navigate through but as Furetank has experienced, the EMRI autopilots can do the job together with a good ECDIS voyage planning. Per-Anders Höglund, Chief Security Officer at Furetank, says:

“From what we have gotten of feedback from our people on the bridges, we can tell that the EMRI autopilot is both a reliable auto- and track pilot in tight spots, and due to EMRI’s history of reducing ships’ oil consumption, it only aided to the choice of their autopilot for this generation of eco-friendly tankers”

The system around the autopilot

​Besides the autopilot, Furetank’s new fleet will receive its Remote-Control System from EMRI. This entails the central steering wheel on the bridge, the mini wheels for the wings, the Non-Follow-Up system and lever, mode selectors, displays, as well as physical rudder angle indicators to be mounted directly on the rudder. Furetank has made an active choice in selecting EMRI as the provider due to experiences with earlier ships, and the long history between the two companies continues to grow longer each year.

EMRI – Electronic & Marine Research Industries:

EMRI is a Danish technology company in the maritime sector, founded in 1972. EMRI has been the world leader in the development of analogue steering and rudder control systems for improving ships’ steering capabilities and thus a significant reduction of oil consumption onboard. For more than 45 years, EMRI has delivered autopilots, joystick / DP systems, complete steering control systems and much more to all types of ships in the maritime industry.​


Turnover record at EMRI A/S

EMRI presents the best fiscal year in the company’s history. After completing some difficult years during the financial crisis, the now 45-year-old business presents the company’s best revenue ever

Herlev, June 9 2017 – In the maritime industry, where many companies have experienced a crisis over the past many years, EMRI has managed to maintain a steady course with a full order book. Claus Nørtoft Thomsen, CEO at EMRI, says:

“We have been busy and have probably been one of the few companies in the industry who have been lucky with a large order intake. People know us as a company that supplies quality on time and this reputation has helped us through a period, which has been difficult for many competitors”

Efficient employees

With a turnover of DKK 55 million in the fiscal year 2016-17, EMRI can look back on a year with full steam ahead on development, production and delivery based on a staff of skilled and dedicated employees. The turnover of DKK 55 million is more than a doubling of revenue in 2012-13. The extra production has meant that EMRI has had to hire more new employees in 2016 and the future order book means that EMRI can continue this positive development in 2017-18.
