Marine industry – ships, yachts & electric surfboards
Products made of appropriate copper alloys are very popular in the shipbuilding and marine industries
Copper plays a very important role in energy distribution on ships, yachts and boats.
Since most of the equipment, machinery and systems used on ships or yachts run on electricity, the demand for excellent marine energy distribution remains very high. Copper components have high conductivity and ensure safe and efficient delivery of electricity in the wider marine industry as well. The field of electric batteries is also growing stronger in this sector. Modern boats and yachts are electric vessels, powered by modern battery systems.
Electris can supply, dedicated to this industry, copper bus bars and other copper or aluminium parts. Bus bars can be installed in switchboards on ships, yachts, boats and also such equipment as electric surfboards.
Copper bus bars and other components made of copper are ideal for such conditions, as they are characterized by:
- resistance to corrosion,
- adequate hardness and durability,
- high mechanical strength,
- and very good conductivity.
