Alewijnse has completed the electrical installations on board the first two Amels 60s from the highly sophisticated new 60-metre Amels Limited Editions design built by Damen Yachting.
Alewijnse‘s role involved supplying and installing the entire electrical scope for the first Amels 60 Come Together (pictured) and part of the electrical scope for the second Amels 60 Entourage – with the exception of the supply of the AV/IT system on the second yacht.
This included the yachts’ state-of-the-art hybrid propulsion systems with peak shaving capability together with their energy storage systems, as well as the navigation, communications, lighting, alarms, hotel systems and more.
Complete electrical package
‘Our ability to supply, fit and install the complete electrical package is important for Amels,’ says Alewijnse Project Manager William Bouman. ‘Streamlining the number of contractors at the yard ensures a smoother build process and there are very few electrical integrators that can offer the complete package.’
With challenging targets for each yacht there is no room for error. ‘Long lead times for equipment and delays in getting deliveries of materials has an impact on everyone,’ continues Bouman, ‘but Alewijnse and Amels have worked together for many years and we operate effectively as a single team, so any issues that arise are addressed immediately in a spirit of cooperation.’
