A Rich Maritime History
HPI has a thorough understanding of the reliability required by harsh marine environments. The HPI team has a long and successful track record extending back to the 1960’s with Hawker Siddeley Dynamics Engineering (HSDE) and Vosper Thornycroft Controls (VT Controls). HSDE was the primary designer and provider of shipboard machinery control and surveillance systems to the UK Ministry of Defence and the Royal Navy prior to the VT Controls acquisition of HSDE in the mid 1990’s. VT Controls was a UK-based shipbuilding company that withdrew from the US market to focus on the shipbuilding industry in the UK.

This comprehensive background in marine systems enables HPI to supply digital control systems, which are designed for easy retrofit onto existing units and are robust enough to withstand the test of time and harsh environments. HPI  also offers direct replacement units for the DIGICON®, Woodward NetCon™ 5000, and Rustronic? (also known as Ruston, EGT, or Siemens) controllers.
