Alewijnse expertise in smart shipping during SMM Hamburg 2018

Visitors to SMM Hamburg, taking place from 4-7 September 2018 at the Hamburger Messe, are invited to join the Alewijnse Marine team on stand 125 in Hall B6. There they will be sharing their expertise covering the latest smart developments in system integration, electrical installations, automation, hybrid solutions, IT/ICT and NavCom.

Smart shipping

The company will be bringing its philosophy of smart shipping to the show. The maritime industry increasingly demands smart technologies to make vessels safer, more sustainable and more efficient. Alewijnse is responding to this by offering solutions for the best-possible onboard information security, remote servicing for real-time exchange of system information from a distance and preventive maintenance, a new Alewijnse concept that is already delivering higher cost-savings and less downtime via proactive preventive maintenance to vessels’ electrical systems.

Smart dredge automation solutions

Visitors to the Alewijnse stand at SMM will also be able to find more about Alewijnse´s smart and reliable Dredge Automation Systems. These solutions are unique to Alewijnse and are designed to deliver the safest and most efficient dredging operations in the market with maximum uptime. Visitors to the stand will be able to view a 3D simulation of the Alewijnse Dredge Automation Systems on a console by using the Vuforia AR app, developed by Alewijnse and Novotek, that will also allow users to overlay key IoT and enterprise systems data. This is the first time in the maritime industry that augmented reality has been used to demonstrate a real product in this way.

Alewijnse system integration

Alewijnse delivers a round the clock, global service that covers the design, engineering, installation, integration and service & maintenance of all types of electrical and electro-mechanical systems. It works on every type of vessel and installation across a wide range of markets and sectors including offshore & dredging, yachting and naval.


Notable highlights in the recent years in the offshore, offshore wind and dredging market include the contracts to deliver electrical services and maintenance on the first Damen Marine Aggregate Dredger (MAD) 3500, the 117-metre, the 8500m³ trailing suction hopper dredger TSHD Samuel de Champlain, the new cargo vessel Arklow Venus, the ferries Côte des Dunes and Côte des Flandres, the jack-up rig Seafox 5, a series of offshore crew transfer vessels (CTVs) for offshore wind support company Windcat Workboats and the new, world‐beating, Antarctic icebreaker RSV Nuyina.

In the naval market Alewijnse has been awarded a contract by Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding (DSNS) for the complete delivery, installation, commissioning and testing of the electrical fit-out for a new Damen Sigma 10514 Long Range Patrol Vessel. Besides that Alewijnse has worked on a wide range of naval vessels in recent years.

Alewijnse also continues to be a valued partner in the sector for 35 to 140 metre superyachts, an industry known for its high standards, cutting-edge technology and the importance that it places on impeccable service. The company has brought its new superyacht service and refit subsidiary in the Mediterranean superyacht hub of La Ciotat up to speed. Recently Alewijnse has celebrated the order for the new 77-metre Damen SeaXplorer expedition yacht.
