Betesan’s involvement in the Emergency Response and Diving Training Boat (ACMB) project included the development of the Main Distribution Switchboards, the Boat Control and Monitoring System, and the Fire Detection System for the vessels, as well as the provision of all electrical equipment, which they delivered directly to DESAN Shipyard.
Betesan provides electrical and automation engineering solutions, as a global brand with nearly 30 years of experience under its belt. The company serves the global shipbuilding sector in partner roles through the provision of these solutions in production efforts.
In addition to providing complete electrical system solutions, Betesan also serves the shipbuilding sector through its group companies, including Margen, which supplies ship propulsion and marine engines, as well as marine generators; and Betex, which successfully represents the branches of leading companies in their field, both in Turkey and abroad, with sales, engineering, commissioning and after-sales services.
Betesan serves its customers out of its head office and facility in İstanbul, Tuzla, and from its free-zone facility, employing 50 engineers, 30 administrative personnel and a 200-strong field installation team. This team of 280 personnel has allowed Betesan to deliver over 600 projects to date, and the company continues to grow, ensuring it can meet all needs of the developing market.
Wide Product Range
Betesan is continuing production of a wide range of products in its facilities. Among the main systems and products in which it specialises are low voltage distribution switchgear, automation systems, bridge control consoles, integrated system solutions and production for electric-hybrid ships, all of which are produced to international standards.
As the propulsion systems in the shipbuilding sector are converging into electrical systems, being more environmentally friendly than diesel engines, companies in the sector must be able respond to the increasing demands in this direction, and Betesan is undergoing constant development in this regard.
Technologies undergo constant improvement and development, and many of the systems being planned for the future are starting life today. All of the necessary works required to develop and improve on the current systems are being carried out by Betesan’s engineering team, while the Betesan Management team provides all necessary support to R&D works, ensuring our continued contribution to the maritime sector in the years to come.
Military Projects on the Agenda
Military vessels represent a key part of the shipbuilding and maritime sector, and naval investments have increased and become more important as a result of recent developments. Betesan’s works in the military field include its contributions to the Search and Rescue Boat (SARBOT) and ACMB projects. Betesan has completed the electrical design, and the production of the low voltage distribution switchgear and control/command console of the SARBOTs; and the production and supply of electrical equipment, boards, consoles and auxiliary systems, and the integration of the electrical systems of ACMBs. The company created the customised bridge consoles for this project in its facilities, in cooperation with the Presidency of Defence Industries (SSB) and DESAN Shipyard.
Betesan is also participating in the Training Ships (CTS) project of the Qatari Emiri Navy, working with ADİK Shipyard. In the project, Betesan is undertaking the design and production of the electrical equipment and auxiliary electrical systems, as well as the system integration works on the vessel.
Betesan will also install all of the electrical equipment, the low voltage distribution switchgear and other auxiliary electrical systems for the 90m-long, 3,000-tonne capacity Underwater Floating Drydock, for which the steel cutting ceremony was held in August. The dock will be built in Hicri Ercili Shipyard in a project in which Yütek Ship Building is the main contractor. This floating dock will serve the submarines in the inventory of Turkish Naval Forces Command, including the new submarines that will be built in the future. In addition to the generators that will supply the necessary power, the Betesan group of companies will also produce, supply and commission the following components:
- Diving Control/Monitoring System (DCMS),
- Mechanical Control/Monitoring System (MCMS),
- Damage/Fire Control/Monitoring System (DFMS),
- Deflection Monitoring System,
- Underwater Screening System,
- Ship Information System,
- Ship Positioning System,
- Tank Level Monitoring System,
- Fire Detection System,
- Alarm-Announcement, Internal Communications, Telephone Systems
- Wind Indicator System,
- Satellite TV System
