Marine Controls

Marine Control Systems

HPI  has commissioned PLC control systems and performed mechanical repair and overhaul (MRO) services in military and commercial ships, across a broad range of turbines and engines. HPI’s experience with commercial and naval vessels includes cruise ships, fleet-support ships, fast ferries, and offshore support vessels. Our experience on these vessels includes varied propulsion, gas turbines, pump jets, and diesel electric systems.

Marine Integrated Power Management Systems (IPMS)
HPI’s IPMS allows for reliable and safe control of electrical propulsion systems, and provide better diagnostic capabilities for maintenance personnel. We leverage commercially-off-the-shelf (COTS), open-architecture software and industry-standard remote I/O outstation hardware. This system allows for better diagnostic capabilities and easier maintenance.

Our power management system is multi-platform, able to integrate with an HPI- or OEM-control system. This ship power management system provides reliable and safe control of electrical propulsion systems, powered by various marine ship engines.
