Simplifying Validation for Vessel Owners

Validating the proper functioning of electrical and control systems is critical for vessel owners, but the process can be complicated, time-consuming and risky. Technicians may need to fabricate temporary connections or gain access to precarious spaces. This introduces opportunities for human error and equipment failures that can lead to extended downtime.

That's why many owners are adopting Designed4Validation, a new approach that installs dedicated, marine-grade test points for critical systems like generators, switchboards and propulsion controls. Strategically locating type-approved connectors from recognized brands simplifies and streamlines validation work.

With Designed4Validation, technicians no longer waste time fabricating test rigs and hunting for connection points. They can rapidly connect validation tools using purpose-built access panels, reducing the validation timeline by 30% or more. And because the test points are permanent installations, there is no risk of improperly re-assembling systems after testing.

By designing validation access into the vessel from the outset, owners can keep their ships sailing safely and efficiently. The upfront investment into robust test points pays dividends over the life of the vessel by enabling rapid, repeatable testing. Designed4Validation gives owners the quick validation capabilities they need, without compromising safety or uptime.

Whether owners operate offshore wind ships, cargo vessels, passenger ships or specialty vessels, Designed4Validation aims to work for their specific validation needs. Simplifying the validation process ultimately allows them to focus on their core mission - keeping their vessels in service.
