Came across an advert for the above in the Blue Book dated 1963. It offered bridge control with only one man in the engine room. Was it a success? Has anyone had any experience on it?

I don't know! I sailed on two Europa Class tankers in the late 70's that had G.E. steam turbines, sailed UMS with bridge control, Nice engines, reliable.
