Proven Processes to Improve Operations
Our team of experts uses proven processes to improve the operation of system assets aboard all maritime vessels. GBS provides solutions for system integration needs, power monitoring, auxiliary, controls and propulsion systems and others.
From new builds to modernizing systems, our team of engineers will reduce the total ownership costs. GBS will guide you through every step of the process for overhauls and upgrades, from design, prototyping, ABS/USCG regulatory approvals, installation, final testing, and commissioning.
We will identify the risks and benefits along the way to help you make informed decisions. By working with the vessel’s owner, operators, and engineers, we will be there to ensure the results are to your satisfaction.
