Whatever the route of the ship is, through icy seas or the Gulf stream, the reliability of the control system is essential and malfunctions are extremely undesirable. Schraven is specialised in the development of 100% custom-built control systems for thrusters. We develop the entire set of mechanical, hydraulic and electrical components in-house and control the propulsion with our own advanced software. We are market leaders with our concept that systems, technologies and (safety) mechanisms should serve people, not the other way around. That is why we make a number of notable customer-oriented choices during the engineering and development process and our custom service continues where that of others stops. For our customers, this has the advantage of fewer failures and alarms with our control system. And if an alarm situation does arise, our refined back-up system responds adequately.
