AMELS works with Alewijnse to complete portfolio on AMELS 60
AMELS has contracted Alewijnse Marine to complete electrical systems. The twin contracts mark a significant milestone in the long-standing working relationship between AMELS and Alewijnse, the company said in its release.
Alewijnse will deliver a total package of electrical installation and systems integration, encompassing an Integrated Bridge System, Audio-Video systems and IT network as well as the hybrid propulsion system.
Alewijnse Marine has 130 years of experience in marine technology and undertakes projects around the world. As an all-round systems integrator, the company supplies a comprehensive range of technical services, innovative electrical engineering, automation, Nav-Com and AV-IT solutions. Alewijnse works on a great number of vessels every year in sectors that include Naval & Governmental, Dredging, Offshore & Transport. This work includes contracts for new build, refit, repair and maintenance projects.
“Alewijnse is an important co-maker and partner for us – their systems can be found on more than twenty of our vessels. They have been closely involved in the development of the AMELS 60 with us and we are now looking forward to working with them on these first two vessels of this new series of superyachts,” stated Victor Caminada, marketing manager at AMELS.
“This is an exciting contract for us in many ways. For example, in terms of technology, it contains some very significant elements. The future-proof hybrid propulsion system is of particular importance. Together with the peak shaving technology with battery power this will yield considerable reductions in fuel consumption and harmful emissions. After supplying the electrical installations for a large number of AMELS vessels in the past, we are proud to participate in the first vessels of their new range of Limited Editions superyachts – the AMELS 60. Therefore, from a business perspective, this contract represents the continuity in our long-term partnership with AMELS.” added Alewijnse Marine Sales Manager Dick Breure.
Alewijnse is already well underway with the electrical engineering phase for the first AMELS 60. The project will proceed into the production phase at AMELS’ yard in the Netherlands, with a completion date scheduled for early 2022.
