Imtech: 34 million euro orders for technology solutions on board luxury (mega) yachts

(PresseBox) (Gouda, ) Imtech (technical services provider in Europe and on the global marine market) has recently acquired orders from various ship owners and shipyards in Europe, Canada and the Far East for technological solutions on board a number of luxury (mega) yachts. These orders represent a total value of more than 34 million euro.

Recently, orders have been acquired for technology solutions on board luxury (mega) yachts ranging from 20-25 metres to almost 90 metres long. The orders involve integrated and automated ships' bridges, energy solutions, propulsion, platform automation & control software, electrical solutions, high-tech multimedia solutions, alarms & monitoring systems and navigation & communication systems. These solutions are based on sustainability and energy-savings.
