Role Profile

In Electrical engineering is essential to every product developed to be integrated in Maritime Platforms and the support and upkeep of weapon, propulsion, generation and auxiliary systems.

Can you...

  • Imagine a ship without electrical supplies and services?
  • Imagine a ship generation system that cannot provide the necessary power in both peacetime and wartime?
  • Imagine a ship filled with electrical power, data circuits and fibre optics without the right levels of engineering competence to ensure the correct system engineering?

It’s our Electrical Engineers that solve these problems and using their knowledge and expertise of working with complicated systems, provide successful outcomes for both the business, and our customers.

Electrical Engineers work at the heart of all our operations and projects, working at all stages of the product lifecycle, determining initial requirements, designing how a new capability interfaces with a ship, developing production standard solutions, and testing the finished product to its limits. They are specialists in their field, and are expected to have a detailed knowledge of the processes involved in creating and maintaining successful electrical products and services, and the ingenuity and creativity to devise methods of producing optimum performance in the systems and interfaces.
