Engine/Generator Control Panels

IEM Marine offers an in-house solution for your engine control and monitoring requirements. Our custom-built control panels are specifically designed for each application. From a simple gauge panel to a complex control and monitoring system, our dedicated design and engineering team provides custom solutions for your engine control and monitoring needs.

Shore Power Panels

IEM Marine Shore Power Panels are offered with various configurations to solve your application requirements. Designs featuring industry leading components allow for a superior, fully customizable control and monitoring assembly that maximizes operational reliability while minimizing maintenance.

IEM Power Systems works in partnership with Cochran Marine, the leading provider of shore power systems for cruise lines.

Our shore power solutions allow cruise and cargo vessels to quickly and safely transition from auxiliary engine power to cleaner grid power when arriving in port.  This reduces in-port emissions improving the port environment and addressing the concerns of local residents and regulatory authorities.

We can provide all or part of your shore power system. Working with Cochran Marine we offer a true end to end shore power solution including consulting, design, build, installation and commissioning.  Cochran Marine provide after sales service that supports each and every connection and keeps the system maintained in the tough shoreside environment.  We can also provide the on-board elements to receive and distribute shore power, during the original build or as a retrofit.
