Our friends electric
When Piet Brouwer Electrotechnology opened a dedicated office on Mallorca last year the move was very much welcomed by the yachting community as well as the commercial shipping industry. From regular visitors to the island to those en-route elsewhere, the 24/7 availability of the Dutch company’s service engineers means reliable and fast support for any and all electrical problems.
Based on the famous former fishing island of Urk in the Netherlands, Piet Brouwer Electrotechnology has achieved global fame for designing and delivering quality electrical, navigation and alarm systems onboard superyachts and commercial vessels. Recent examples that have made the pages of the leading magazines include the high-tech systems installed on the 47-metre motoryacht Lady Dee, the 49-metre motoryacht Nassima and a 46-metre Vicem yacht from the Vulcan Line series.
Safety is one of the things for which Piet Brouwer Electrotechnology is renowned. In its early years the company was mainly focused on delivering systems for fishing boats, which these were crewed by family and close friends. An electrical system could not fail as it could be a matter of life or death – and despite the fact that Piet Brouwer Electrotechnology now has a global client base its staff always take the same meticulous and personal approach to each and every project.
To ensure the quality of the delivered systems and provide a comprehensive service to customers, Piet Brouwer Electrotechnology has developed an extensive and highly experienced service department. This division provides worldwide service for the electrical systems installed on yachts and commercial vessels. Service is provided for electrical installations delivered by Piet Brouwer Electrotechnology, and maintenance and service work can also be carried out on other vessels.
In response to the high demand for its expertise from clients in and around Mallorca, the Dutch company decided to create a permanent presence on the island. Its office and workshop are located on the Carrer Monseñor Palmer, within walking distance of many of Palma de Mallorca’s marinas.
This is also the location of the warehouse, from where common items are delivered directly from stock. The position allows engineers to quickly be on site whenever assistance is required. They have a wealth of experience in both yachtbuilding and commercial shipping & fishing, which the engineers deploy to quickly solve complex problems and keep downtime to a minimum.
Thanks to the short communication lines with the headquarters on Urk, backup is always available and flexible deployment assured. First-class support for engineering, panel installation, inventory and logistics is also guaranteed along with more engineer manpower when required.
The office and workshop in Palma de Mallorca offers services related to maintenance and service, as well as measurements, inspections, modifications, alterations or even complete refits. Upgrades to existing systems can also be carried out to ensure that onboard comfort remains optimal.
