Remote Fleet Vision (RFV) Integration Sets MEO Crew Boat Apart Worldwide


  • Singapore-based MEO Group partners with Penguin Shipyard and authorized Cat dealer Tractors Singapore along with Ascenz Marorka for the construction of a groundbreaking crew boat, marking the world’s first integration of Cat Remote Fleet Vision (RFV).
  • During the construction phase, Cat RFV and Ascenz Marorka’s fuel monitoring systems will merge into a unified dashboard engineered by Cat, streamlining data management and accessibility.
  • RFV technology facilitates remote monitoring of main and auxiliary engine parameters in real-time, empowering MEO Group’s onshore personnel to promptly oversee repair and maintenance recommendations, while also enabling early detection of potential issues for predictive maintenance, reducing unplanned downtime.
  • Remote monitoring of fuel tank levels and fuel supply amounts enhances operational transparency and efficiency. MEO Group can analyze data to optimize fuel consumption and operational procedures.
  • MEO Group emphasizes the importance of digitalization to ensure timely data access and informed decision-making, enhancing vessel technical availability and operational efficiency, positioning itself as a smart and efficient ship operator.

Revolutionizing Maritime Construction

The inaugural crew boat under construction at Penguin Shipyard for Singapore’s MEO Group will pioneer the installation of Cat Remote Fleet Vision (RFV), making it the world’s foremost vessel to feature this technology. MEO Group is partnering with the shipyard, along with authorized Cat dealer Tractors Singapore and Ascenz Marorka, for this innovative project.

During the construction phase of the crew boat, Cat RFV and Ascenz Marorka’s fuel monitoring will be integrated into a single dashboard designed by Cat

RFV will remotely monitor the vessel’s main engines and auxiliary engines’ key parameters in real-time, enabling MEO Group’s shore-based personnel to track all recommended repairs and maintenance remotely and promptly. It also provides early detection of potential issues for predictive maintenance and supports the prevention of unplanned downtime.

Digitalization For Enhanced Efficiency

Additionally, the remote fuel tank monitoring capabilities will communicate the amount of fuel available as well as how much is being supplied. The remote fuel monitoring function also allows MEO Group to analyze data to enhance operational efficiency.

MEO Group says that, in striving to provide high vessel technical availability to its clients, it recognizes the need to move towards digitalization to ensure timely access to data and data-based insights. It says that the ability to monitor the vessels’ operations remotely enables it to become a smart and more efficient ship operator.

“Our crew mobility transport business must work like clockwork and MEO Group must adapt and innovate to remain competitive and relevant,” says MEO Group CEO Darren Ang. “The same holds for our fleet management. We are entering an era where data technology and connectivity will reshape the way we operate. Fleet digitalization is not just a necessity, it is an opportunity. It will help us to be more efficient, reduce cost and improve safety and sustainability of our fleet.”
