A guide to electrical engineering
With superyachts becoming larger and more advanced, with room for more comprehensive systems and technologies aboard, it has never been more necessary to employ the help of knowledgeable electrical engineers. Whether shore-based, or working aboard in the role of electro technical officer (ETO), Yachting Pages presents a guide to electrical engineering in the marine sector, helping owners, crew and management companies to understand the important components of this sector.
Technology generally improves our lives, or at least makes some kind of process or task more efficient. Unfortunately, the rise of tech in today's age has opened up new threats. Is the superyacht industry ready to cope?
Electrical engineering on board yachts and superyachts in modern times can involve a host of electrical problems, technical faults and replacement works. We worked with Atlas Marine Systems to put together a guide on what shore-based electrical engineering companies can offer to on-board marine engineers.
As the superyachts of today become more advanced, expensive and diverse, so do the electrical systems that are found on board. This has led to the position of the Electro Technical Officer being introduced on board. Yachting Pages details the role and responsibilities of a ETO.
