It is almost 25 years ago since our senior manager Mr. Hans Rainer Armbrecht developed and tested the unique pneumatic door drive system PCS 2000.
The first delivery of drives took place in 1992 on board the Meyer weft new building Silja Europa. Since then the PCS 2000 was in massive use on board thousands of vessels around the globe.
Due to the latest IMO and SOLAS regulation, it was stipulated that Fire test certificates should not be older than 15 years.
AP Marine GmbH took this opportunity and successfully fire tested the existing PCS 2000 with minor modifications at the RINA Fire test institute in Genoa.
On top of that, we invested in the development of a new groundbreaking pneumatically operated hinged door system.
Both systems show the unbeatable reliability of the PCS family and are available for sale in the next coming weeks.
