SILS does not require any drilling or penetration of the hull in any way (an obvious benefit of using induction systems in the marine industry). The lights can be easily retrofitted without fear of leaks or bad workmanship by an outside electrician and gives peace of mind that the vessel has not been weakened in any way with a hole.
BGBs manufacturing expertise and technological know-how has been the driving force behind patenting the inductive control technology. This allows BGB to be the only underwater lighting manufacturer to be able to offer control of inductive power transfer for lighting within the maritime industry.
SILS is easily fitted with a BGB alignment tool and marine grade adhesive (provided with units). Currently the vessel has to be onshore in dry conditions in order to fit SILS, but future development will aim for fitting to be achievable whilst in water.
