Power management company Eaton will demonstrate its expanded ability to deliver electrical, explosion-proof and hydraulic equipment for the marine and offshore industry at the international maritime trade fair SMM 2014 from September 9-12 in Hamburg. Visitors to Eaton’s stand can learn about the company’s offerings that help shipbuilders use electrical, fluid and mechanical power more reliably, efficiently, safely and sustainably.

SMM takes place every two years and Eaton has significantly broadened its portfolio for marine and offshore applications in that period. While the company is well-known in areas such as low and medium voltage power distribution, power quality and automation, it also offers expertise in explosion-proof electrical and lighting equipment, safety and communication systems, automation connectivity, instrumentation and monitoring due to its acquisition of Cooper Industries in 2012.

“In times where shipbuilders are increasingly concerned with topics such as compliance, safety and operational readiness, we are positioned to provide the essential electrical and hydraulic solutions the industry needs”, says Oscar Rivella, Segment Manager Marine & Offshore, Eaton. “Having added former Cooper brands such as Crouse-Hinds, Hernis, B-Line, Gitiesse, MTL, MEDC, Fulleon, FHF and Heinemann to our existing portfolio allows us to significantly meet the demands for all electrical equipment required on board of any type of vessel.”

Among the highlights on the stand will be the Imcos integrated communication solution for safety and hazardous areas; one of very few systems available today that is certified by seven type approval authorities. Imcos is capable of bringing together all internal communication needs from telecommunication, surveillance, monitoring systems, entertainment and LAN to visual and audible signalling and alarm devices. Additionally, it is possible to create an entire fire detection system based on Imcos and each solution is configured with a fail-safe philosophy as each section is governed by redundant processors, controlling and monitoring the overall system’s performance.

With over 50 years of experience in the design, production and delivery of advanced marine Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems to cruise lines, ferries, ice breakers, Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) carriers, cable ships, dredgers and oil rigs, power quality is a core competence at Eaton. At SMM the company will showcase its broad range of UPSs specifically designed and pre-approved for marine and offshore applications to aid in the smooth operation of crucial electrical systems at sea.

The product portfolio presented in Hamburg also includes low and medium voltage switchgear, onshore power supply systems for marina and cruise ship terminal needs, busbar trunking, cable ladder and arc flash protection systems, marine certified variable speed drives as well as filtration systems. In terms of low voltage solutions, visitors will be able to get a sneak preview of the Power Xpert CXH, which will be Eaton’s future global platform for IEC motor control centers and power distribution assemblies.

Beyond the technology, shipbuilders and suppliers can also find out more about how Eaton’s innovative international service network, comprised of more than 1,800 field personnel in 21 countries, can support specific applications. Thanks to its global footprint in manufacturing, sales and support, as well as its international certifications, Eaton is capable of effectively servicing customers wherever they are building, drilling, pumping or refining.
