Design Services

The safest, most reliable and cost-effective marine electrical power system starts with a quality design

Select Atlas’ team of highly experienced and degreed marine Electrical Engineers to provide the optimum electrical power system design for your vessel. Their many years of large yacht and commercial marine electrical power system experience will prove to be a key element to enhance the design of the vessel’s electrical power system and add value to the project. Prevention of equipment interface issues in the design stage pays off many times over in cost, time and rework savings. AC and DC systems provide power to critical navigation, propulsion and safety systems aboard the vessel. Proper power system operation and reliability are key design requirements at Atlas.

Detailed Documentation Package

The engineering design team at Atlas Marine Systems provides a detailed documentation package that assists the shipyard in identifying the electrical power system components and equipment specifications for procurement from suppliers. Atlas has the expertise to make recommendations, assist in the selection of vendors and request of quotations. The level and quantity of documentation provided by Atlas to the shipyard can be increased or decreased based on the requirements of the project. Any degree of involvement can be arranged — from a customized load analysis for a specific vessel to review of an existing design or a complete design package. Engineering services are provided on a “per hour” basis and capable of exceeding the requirements of the most discerning customers.

Atlas — Your single-source electrical supplier for design and equipment

The Atlas design service is an enhancement to an electrical system using Atlas TecPOWER AC and DC switchboards and ShorPOWER frequency, voltage and phase converters. With the increased use of variable speed drives and other switching power supplies on the electrical bus, system harmonics is becoming more critical in developing a complete solution for a vessels electrical power. Intimate knowledge of these devices and their capabilities enables Atlas designers to incorporate them into the vessel’s electrical power system more efficiently and accurately than other designers. The result is the dependability provided by a single source for the entire electrical power system, from design to delivery of equipment.

Atlas frequently collaborates with naval architects and ship builders through the transfer of drawings and documents in electronic form of projects with clients worldwide. This rapid and efficient communication with customers is key to the delivery of an accurate and timely design project.

The design team can incorporate a wide range of electrical design goals into a project. If a simple, manually operated electrical power system is desired, Atlas can provide a basic design. If a fully automated power management system which automatically starts generators and seamlessly controls loads is desired, Atlas can incorporate the features you request into the design. If certification of the electrical system by a marine certification agency is desired, we can prepare and submit the documentation package and deliver the final approval letter to the customer.
