CEO Arnstein Kjesbu of Eltorque, the leading manufacturer of electric valve actuators, has a clear idea of the value for shipowners of trouble-free systems: “Our company slogan is “Lifelong Intelligent Control”. That describes not just what our products do, but what shipowners get with Eltorque actuators controlling the vital valve systems on their ships. They don’t ever have to worry about maintenance, they have real-time communication with the actuators, and they have full and precise control over valve functions – for the life of the ship.”
Over the years, Eltorque has built a strong position with its electric valve actuators. Some of the success is due to the possibility of serial connection, simplifying installation and increasing performance. This time, Eltorque has taken a huge leap forward with the launch of a Hybrid Power/CANbus cable, fundamentally changing the installation methodology.
Eltorque is quickly becoming a major player in valve control. Our electric actuators, control systems and brand new hybrid cable revolutionizes remote control of valves in maritime applications. Even in an uphill market, the stage is set for continued growth as we release new products and increase our communications effort towards the market.
