Retrofit solutions

Automation systems are not immune to the passage of time. As a system ages, risks develop in terms of the reliability of the controller and the electro-technical components. What's more, after 10 to 15 years it is practically impossible to obtain spare parts from the manufacturers of many electronic components. Maintenance times and repair costs rise, as the periods during which the system runs without any faults fall. At a certain point, you will need to ask yourself:

  1. Is it still worth repairing?
  2. Are spare parts still available for this old system?
  3. Are there still qualified service professionals for the system?

Our retrofit solutions allow you to modernise your systems. We will replace your old components with the latest technology, already tried and tested in numerous new and modernised vessels, as well as equipping many of our systems with simple (plug and play) replacement solutions.
