BARILLEC Marine’s core business is designing, installing and maintaining the electrical production and distribution networks required for a ship’s propulsion, navigation and daily life. From lighting to fishing gear, navigation systems to surveillance equipment, an electrician ensures that the ship’s vital systems are in proper working order, keeping sailors safe and comfortable.

This is a job that involves a great deal of responsibility and requires extensive expertise. A ship’s electrician fully understands ships, their operational needs and their regulatory, environmental and safety requirements. The company is able to draw on their 60-plus years of experience, having got their start in Concarneau modernising fishing fleets. They are staying true to this sector when it comes to building and maintaining ships.
