Fixed and non-stationary electrical installations and equipment in shipbuilding.
In order to bring ships, boats or yachts to life, shipbuilding requires a great deal of expertise and a large number of electrical installations, highly complex equipment and electrical devices, all of which must be installed and operated in accordance with the legal requirements. All the electrical engineering regulations must be observed here. The inspections of all electrical systems and electrical equipment performed at regular intervals also play an important part here with regard to electrical safety.
The core elements of the electrical equipment, installations and their testing required here cover a wide range of activities:
The modern ship automation system is designed to keep the ship’s machinery running smoothly and is equipped with state-of-the-art ship and boat electronics. This ranges from the monitoring, control, fitting with alarms as well as the regular and recurring inspection of the operating equipment to the documentation of the most marine processes.
The electronics and ship lighting used on ships need to meet very special maritime shipping requirements. This is because no matter whether it’s a tanker, cruise ship or yacht, on the high seas, where boat electrics, light, technology and electricity are concerned, the thing that matters most of all is reliability and perfect functioning.

What one requires here is reliable ship electrics that can withstand the extreme conditions at sea. In addition, on board one is often faced by small amounts of space or angular rooms. Electrical and technical installations and housings are individually adapted for this purpose.
No matter whether modern entertainment solutions such as video on demand or sound and sound systems, multimedia technology and the use of digital communication are becoming increasingly important for both small and large ships. Modern electrical systems for ship communication thus ensure reliable operation.
Electrical installations and equipment sectors:
- External communication
- Internal communication
Until the mid-90s, people still navigated using a compass, sextant, log, sea chart, course triangle and a compass drawing tool. Nowadays, all new ships are equipped with modern navigation equipment and older ships are retrofitted and modernised. The highly complex and interlinked systems place high demands on the electrical systems and equipment.
On the ship’s bridge, electrical equipment such as consoles, control desks and their regular inspection play a key part in ensuring safe operation at all times.
