EWP’s work ranges from new builds in the shipyards through to refurbishment of cruise ships in any setting – wet dock, dry dock or in service.
We have installed countless audio systems, from small background music systems, to large-scale distributed systems ship-wide. We design systems which can save on space & maintenance whilst ensuring the end result is everything you want it to be.
Our knowledge of emergency voice evacuation systems, and the EN54 regulations, allow us to offer many solutions including integrating audio systems with voice evacuation systems.
When it comes to stage lighting systems, the same energy saving results achieved by domestic LED lights can be applied by replacing old generic halogen fixtures with new intelligent LED alternatives. We have seen impressive results with our past projects giving a return of investment in less than 3 years.
With new technology using multi-chip LED’s featuring RGB colour mixing, less fixtures are required to create the same effect as 4 or 5 generic halogen fixtures. This saves programming time, energy and space while delivering a high-end performance to compliment any show.
We can supply complete video solutions for all areas on a ship whether it be an IPTV solution for all of your onboard cabins or simply a live camera feed from the stage to screens around the venue. With video being the fastest evolving technology in our industry, we remain focused on the advances and keep our training and purchasing up to date.
Staff Training and Progression
We offer training and appraisal for your technical entertainment staff. This includes putting processes in place so that all of your staff feel confident to operate the latest in sound and lighting technology. We also offer your staff a single point of contact, available 24/7, for technical support for your fleet of vessels.
Maintenance and Repairs
Being in service can make it difficult to obtain spare parts for your equipment. We offer a maintenance and repair service for all of your fixtures, both old and new. We have teams of experienced technicians located around the globe available to jump on a ship and give you a solution to your problem, parts in hand.
No Dry Dock?
We can install most elements while a ship is in service. In fact, most of our marine installations have been carried out this way, and we work with the cruise schedule to ensure we never get in the way and there is no disruption to passenger experience.
Advantages of LED include:
All light sources use a given amount of energy (watts) to create a given amount of light (lumens). LED’s do this better than any other light source and currently can achieve up to 145 lumens per watt compared to halogen which achieves only 25.
Low running temperature
Most of the energy emitted from incandescent and halogen lamps is converted to heat. LED emits very little heat, reducing the work of air conditioning units and increasing passenger comfort.
With virtually zero mercury LED’S offer safe and ecological disposal at the end of their lifespan. LED technology provides a long lasting and impressive level of lighting and contains no harmful chemicals. They retain their true colour and start instantly throughout their life.
Compared to halogen, LED lights last on average 10 times longer and a previously unthinkable lifetime of 50,000 hours is now possible. To put this into context, that is a lifespan of 6 years if used for 24 hrs per day 365 days per year. This minimizes the need for lamp replacement and maintenance procedures for large-scale applications such as the cruise and hospitality sector.
Compared to halogen and incandescent, LED has a much lower failure rate. All of our LED products come with a minimum guarantee of 2 years while most come with a 5-year guarantee. We specify each product to each area. For outdoor/deck applications we only ever use products that are specifically designed and tested for marine applications.
Tried & tested
The benefits are clear; you only have to look at the numbers!
On average LED technology provides an energy saving of 70% and a return on investment in less than two years. There is even more opportunity for savings with the reduced cost of air conditioning due to lower temperatures, which also delivers a more comfortable environment for passengers and crew.
How can we help you make the change to LED?
3 Simple Steps…
Complete lighting report detailing your current annual energy usage and average maintenance costs. Compile a detailed breakdown of the equivalent annual energy usage and cost savings for an LED based system, along with an estimated return of investment.
Create a schedule for the delivery of the LED products with complete flexibility. We can ship worldwide. For large orders we can send everything at once or in stages, whatever is convenient.
