Case Study

One of our many successful CMCE installations includes the Chevron California Voyager, a 613-foot chemical/oil tanker that primarily operates in the Gulf of Mexico. Lightning can cause severe damage to the ship’s navigation and communication systems, in addition to the risk posed by highly flammable cargo on board. To ensure continued operations, Chevron installed one CMCE Diamond and one CMCE Platinum. Both units were grounded to the ship’s structural steel.

Get ahead of the storm! Invest in CMCE Lightning Prevention to protect your boat from the devastating impact of lightning strikes.
