Alewijnse to introduce the latest lighting experience for the yachting industry at METSRADE 2022

November 3 2022

Systems integrator Alewijnse will put the spotlight on the latest lighting technology for superyachts at METSTRADE 2022 at the RAI in Amsterdam. Within the theme #WeConnectToAClearFuture, the company, together with partner Fibr8, is presenting the latest application of laser light via super-thin fiber optic cables. These create a powerful interplay of lines on across a yacht’s exterior, resulting in spectacular lighting effects. For more than 130 years, Alewijnse has been a leading innovator in electrical technology. As a systems integrator it continually monitors the latest advances coming out of its technology partners. By taking the best and most relevant to its customers and applying them to its systems, it ensures that its products remain at the cutting edge of reliability and functionality.

Spectacular innovation

To METS 2022, Alewijnse will be bringing the very latest in superyacht lighting technology in partnership with lighting specialist Fibr8. By sending laser light along super thin and flexible optical fibers, a powerful interplay of light along the exterior lines and superstructures can be created. Extremely sleek and subtle, the fibers deliver the most spectacular light effects. Visitors to the METS exhibition will have the opportunity to experience this smart innovation at the Alewijnse stand (10.300). In addition to its exceptional visual experience, this innovation also offers many other advantages. These include long light lines of up to 120 meters, relatively simple and inexpensive maintenance - because all the technology is concentrated in a separate box - and energy savings compared to traditional LED lighting. This is a spectacular innovation with endless possibilities for now and the future. Its applications within the maritime sector are almost endless, and not just as exterior lighting for large yachts. for example, the technology can also be used for light lines on a deck to indicate a path or contours, or for permanent lines to mark out helicopter platforms. Fibr8 is currently the only company in the market able to successfully manufacture lighting via fiber optic cables for distances of more than 25 meters. Alewijnse is a reliable and well-known counterparty, with a long history in the electrification and automation of the maritime world. As a system integrator, the company is an important link in the ship development process. Together, the two companies form a perfect combination to provide shipyards and shipping companies with the latest technologies.

Other new products

In addition to the latest lighting technology for superyachts, Alewijnse will also be showing other innovations at METS 2022. One of these is the Alewijnse Movie On Demand (ALMOD) system together with a next generation Graphical User Interface (GUI) created using Crestron’s CH5 development platform. Also being presented for the first time will be its new Alarm, Monitoring and Control System (AMCS). The new AMCS takes full advantage of the latest advances in hardware to deliver systems that set new standards of speed, reliability and versatility. If you would like to be introduced to these spectacular innovations, then join us at the Alewijnse booth 10.300 in the SuperYacht pavilion. There you can also enjoy a great We Connect barista coffee experience every day and visitors are welcome to attend the Alewijnse & Fibr8 party on Wednesday, November 16, from 16:00 to 18:00.
