Safety without compromise: Tmax-Retrofit 
The same is true for both older and newer vessels: safety on board is top priority and compliance with safety regulations is essential regardless of the age of the engine. As 3D details are often not available for older engines, retrofitting with SOLAS-compliant high-performance insulation systems has only been possible to a limited extent until now. 6 steps to 100% SOLAS compliance 

A safe home for lithium-ion systems
The dream of emission-free drives is turning into reality in many industries. Lithium-ion batteries offer excellent properties when it comes to service, cost, safety and performance. However, they also place new demands on fire protection in the engine compartment.
This is how you get the highest temperatures under control. Highest temperatures under control

New business area with strong service
We have been servicing our customers in our new gas and steam turbine segment as of June 2018. The comprehensive service package can be individually designed and includes not only the optimal insulation but also services such as a site inspection with thermography, installation of the individually developed system and maintenance. This is how we drive our growth 

These projects were particularly successful for us in 2018
