From electrical system and energy storage design, installation, and shoreside charging - our team can provide fully electric and hybrid propulsion solutions for defence vessels. As the electrical experts behind the Southern Hemisphere's first fully electric passenger ferry, our engineers and electricians can work with you to conduct feasibility studies, power requirement reviews, and design recommendations for an electric or hybrid vessel. With a deep understanding of the naval defence landscape and vessel types, we can provide recommendations where such solutions might be operable, enabling navies to seek out more sustainable vessel options. 

ELECTRICAL SUSTAINMENt 

In addition to providing design and installation solutions for new vessel or upgrades to existing vessels, McKay also provides long-term electrical maintenance solutions as part of vessel sustainment programs. This includes preventative maintenance to ensure that naval vessels are performing optimally.
