Systems integrator Alewijnse will put the spotlight on the latest lighting technology for superyachts at METSTRADE 2022. 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 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 innovationTo 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.
