About Us

Over 30 Years of Experience

Westcon Power & Automation has more than 30 years of experience in the maritime electrical and automation market. Our services range from activities as a total integrator for electrical and automation on newly built marine, to project and service assignments both on / off-shore.

Towards new horizons

In 2020 Westcon Power & Automation – Installation and Inspectio was separated from Westcon Power & Automation (now SEAM), as its own stock company. In 2021 we took the name Westcon Power & Automation (WPA).

Today we are one of the leading suppliers of system integration and electrical propulsion solutions in the world. We have a strong focus on environmental technology and energy efficiency in every segment.
