Marine equipment is often exposed to mechanical stress and vibrations that can affect the critical internal electrical and electronic components and connections. Regular inspections are recommended in order to spot potential problems at an early stage. DH Marine has the knowledge and experience to provide extensive service support packages on behalf of Electro Automation Austevoll to prevent costly and unexpected outages.
