Electrical and automation systems used onboard ships have differences compared to onshore solutions, especially when it comes to the required certifications and approvals. In addition, onboard systems are often required to withstand more hostile environmental conditions than normal industrial setting (e.g. water-tightness, corrosion, vibrations, etc.).
Ships’ electrical grids tend to have faults and disturbances more often than industrial networks. Therefore, the durability of the applied equipment and the use of correct technical solutions play important roles in system design.
StrongFlow has over 20 years of experience in the electrical and automation systems used onboard ships – from design to installation and maintenance.
