Oceanco awards superyacht integration contract to RH Marine

(SCHIEDAM, Netherlands) — Superyacht builder Oceanco has awarded RH Marine the contract for the electrical and automation system integration and overall electrical system responsibility of Oceanco’s new 100-plus-meter yacht. Both parties consider this collaboration to be the start of a productive long-term partnership.

RH Marine is responsible for the delivery of the complete electrical and automation system. The system includes the newest version of RH Marine’s next generation of ship automation: Rhodium AMCS and Energy Management System for optimization of energy consumption.

RH Marine is responsible for the electrical system integration of various systems onboard. To select the best fitting suppliers for the project, Oceanco has consulted RH Marine for the specifications and requirements of all electrical systems onboard.

Oceanco has a forward-thinking vision on large yacht building. Instead of having a dedicated engineering team that provides the specifications upon which suppliers make their offer, it believes in co-makership and involves key partners in the earliest stages of the project to be able to design the specifications of the yacht together.

Oceanco selects the key partners it considers to be of best value for the project based on a combination of attributes such as technical capabilities, project team and project management skills.

RH Marine delivers systems for all types of yachts ranging from 30 to more than 160 meters and is innovating toward a fully sustainable superyacht industry by offering advanced hybrid and energy management solutions. One of which is the installation of a 1-MW hybrid solution on board an 80-plus-meter superyacht.
