ENGINE AUXILIARIES

MARINE PRODUCTS

PPS has over 15 years’ experience in the design and fabrication of auxiliary skids in support of gas turbine and diesel engines.   Integrated module platforms for ship’s critical auxiliary systems provide substantial benefits to shipbuilders, designers, and vessel owners and operators.  These platforms provide a plug-n-play type integration to the ship’s systems.  With individual monitoring and control systems, the interface to the ship’s ECU’s is made easy with only a single communication link.  This type of product greatly speeds up the shipbuilding process from engineering to installation to commissioning and start up.

Our marine skids are designed and built to meet some of the toughest and challenging specifications defined by our US military, shipbuilders, and marine regulatory agencies.  The space constraints, weight limitations, and the extreme environmental characteristics make for a very complex product, one that only an experienced and capable design and manufacturing company can do.
