marine electrical analysis

EBDG develops comprehensive strategies when planning or installing new electrical systems and equipment. We conduct condition assessments and analysis to determine necessary improvements. Where required, we provide a fault current analysis or a breaker coordination analysis.

alternative power solutions

EBDG conducts all-electric and alternative power fleet feasibility studies to help owners understand optimal powering solutions. Our engineers analyze electric solutions for operational efficiencies with consideration to life-cycle costs. As part of this service, we navigate our clients through competing technologies so that the result is tailored to their specific needs.

vessel modernization

During a vessel refit, repower or modernization, consideration must be given to the electrical systems onboard. Our team of engineers provide innovative and comprehensive power and control system upgrades.

shore interfaces

When it comes to power interfacing with a shoreside facility, EBDG designs an electrical panel and switchboard capable of the load requirements.
