The marine environment is particularly vulnerable to salt water and other contaminants. It is also highly dependent on the reliability of machinery and hydraulic systems, as the nearest replacement part could be miles away on the other side of a hurricane.

Typical marine environments include:

  • Container ships, tankers, bulk carriers
  • Passenger vessels, ferries
  • Fishing vessels
  • Dredgers, tugs, barges, workboats

Areas of application within the marine sector:

  • Diesel engines
  • Winches and other marine equipment
  • Hydraulic systems
  • Cranes
  • Automation and control systems
  • Power generation and distribution systems
  • Steering, anchoring, cargo handling, cooling/heating and ventilation
