Marine and Offshore Aboard Solutions

Meeting your needs aboard

The greatest impact on the marine and offshore industry in recent years has been the trend for "mega-ships", using more fuel to transport up to 60% more containers. With an increasing awareness of the need to reduce fuel costs and emissions, this trend has gone hand-in-hand with the move towards all-electric ships.

Featured case study

Hazardous Area communications problem solved


A windfarm installation vessel required a highly integrated voice, data and alarm communication system, suitably ruggedized and approved for its challenging offshore environment. Interoperability, ease of maintenance and scalability were all as important as the system's overall functionality.


Eaton's one-stop supplier capabilities saved the customer time and effort. The system resolved issues of maintenance and upgradeability associated with earlier systems which the customer had employed, and provided many new benefits such as interoperability, rugged product quality and international product support.


Eaton's Hazardous Area Communications Group designed a system based on its unique and comprehensive certified Gitiesse Integrated Multimedia Communication System (IMCOS).


"Eaton's role as a one-stop supplier with a widely-integrated solution has saved us time in administration, as well as technical effort. Their solution has resolved issues of maintainability and upgradeability associated with earlier systems, while providing many new benefits of interoperability, rugged product quality and international support."
