​Valve Remote Control System (VRCS) is a complete system for valve management and control on all types of ships. Together with the gauging system, it provides a comprehensive solution for fluid control.

​If the gauging system is the eyes and ears of the ship, the VRCS could be equated to its nerves and hands. The valve remote control system is used to fill and empty tanks, including cargo tanks, ballast tanks and all service tanks found aboard a ship. Honeywell offers a sturdy VRCS in partnership with Singapore-based Nordic Flow Control that adapts to its working conditions such as temperature and pressure, is safe from corrosion, and is easy to operate and maintain. The control console, with or without control software, is solid and reliable, and provides a highly intuitive interface to help avoid human errors.

A vast majority of valves of the VRCS are equipped with electrical or hydraulic actuators. The actuators are remote-controlled, mechanical devices that must provide precise and reliable closing and opening of the valves, regardless of the pressure and temperature. For example, loading and unloading ballasts involves opening valves on the open sea. Therefore, their closing must be extremely reliable.

Hydraulic actuators are driven through solenoids and manifolds. These are grouped in ‘solenoid cabinets’ and are remotely controlled from the command console. All these are part of a chain which has the resistance of the weakest ring; perfect reliability is demanded from every component. The offering includes all the necessary other components like limit switches, pilot blocks, high pressure units and manual pumps. 

​Fluid handling is a critical part of the operations onboard a ship. VRCS helps maintain balance throughout loading and unloading operations to ensure safety and helps improve efficiency while keeping fuel consumption as low as possible.

​Training, maintenance and support are critical aspects to consider when choosing a technology partner. Honeywell offers world-class training through our Automation College as well as comprehensive maintenance and support services designed to leverage your physical and intellectual assets and help you sustain and increase their value and performance over time.
