SCHOTTEL retrofits mean precision-fit replacement components starting from control system upgrades right through to a complete replacement propulsion system. As soon as obsolete elements need to be replaced or a vessel requires upgrades to be fit for future missions, SCHOTTEL as an OEM ensures operation and support for future generations of ships – from a single vessel to a whole fleet.
Customized propulsion solutions allow you to extend the life of your vessel. We will provide you with proposals for a replacement propulsion system in the event of damage, a planned modified vessel operation profile or for the necessary replacement of an obsolete system. In the event of fleet standardization, streamlined service management in the global SCHOTTEL network pays off in terms of personnel and OEM spare parts.
We are also happy to look into the replacement of competitor products.
Electrical components are subject to more innovative change, constantly enabling state-of-the-art condition monitoring. To address this development, you can choose between replacing individual components or a completely new control system when upgrading. The latter also applies to the necessary replacement of a third-party product’s control system.
Maintaining electrical systems by replacing obsolete control components through to the replacement of complete switch and control panels with the latest SCHOTTEL functionalities; retrofitting of DP/AP/VDR systems and automation systems.
Replacement of the entire control system, conversion to electric control including component replacement, electrics and hydraulics
