Automation: digitalizing the ship

On-board systems are getting increasingly complex, computerized and digitalized. From the inner workings of a ship and the production facilities, to sending an email home at sea – everything needs to function perfectly.

Every ship is different. Navigation and communication systems, but also very specific systems that makes the vessel excel in its task. Especially in offshore construction and Oil & Gas, many systems are custom made. Everything is custom programmed and specified. Your automation partner needs to be an expert in several systems, but also needs to understand the demands of the Maritime & Offshore Industry. Safety always comes first.


Automation in this industry requires a deep understanding of systems, but also the culture of an internationally oriented company. End users must be able to work with ship systems, whatever their cultural background. But most of all, as a client in this industry you need a partner who is able to handle the whole spectrum of automation. Ranging from advise and design to installing and commissioning.
