Concept Partners

With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility

With access to Høglund Solutions, our Concept Partners will be able to engineer, startup and deliver a complete automation system for most types of vessels. Our solutions are extremely efficient and self-explanatory, resulting in fewer engineering and installation hours, reducing the total cost of the delivery. As a Høglund Concept partners you will get access to our marine solution library together with necessary tools needed to engineer and deliver a complete project. Høglund marine library is based upon a large number of earlier delivered projects with necessary expansions and adoptions for every new type of marine components.

Høglund Solutions is designed to perform.  Our self-developed tools will convert the I/O list into a project fil with a few simple mouse clicks. Since Excel is used as master document, changes can be performed rapidly by anyone with basic knowledge of our system. Through automatic processing the control and data acquisition is automatically configured in the PLC controllers.



Human Machine Interface

Graphical displays are made with an intuitive user interface.  Templates are imported from Høglund marine library. Changes can be done onsite by any trained technician. The HMI part of the package opens up a long list of advanced functions and features. For instance, all signals are stored every second and historic data is available through its playback function. Reports can be presented on screens locally or transmitted automatically as emails. All types of communication protocols are available for communication to other systems.

Høglund Training Academy

All technicians will have to complete the Høglund Training Academy. After certification, Concept Partner technicians can design and generate a finished project. Høglund will provide the customer with all necessary software generation tools, templates and process descriptions. Technical assistance will be given when needed. If a project requires special Solutions not included in our marine library, Høglund engineers will develop and update the library.

Together with our training academy, Concept Partners will also be given access to Høglund Knowledge Base containing detailed information and instructions for most of our hardware, software and solutions.
