Welcome to Technical Marine Service

Marine Automation Systems and Control Specialists

Technical Marine Service, Inc. (TMS) started business in 1987.  From the beginning, our approach has been the same: when the job is complete, the system must be more reliable, simpler to maintain, easier to operate, and more cost-effective to run.

TMS originally focused on providing repair and maintenance services for existing control systems and soon branched into new product development by drawing on our ability to provide unique and creative solutions. TMS’s design and component selection criteria reflect the goal of enabling the system’s operators to perform the bulk of all equipment service needs without calling on outside help.

Our engineers and technicians  are familiar with many types of boiler control systems on both US and foreign-flagged vessels. Electronic and pneumatic systems installed as long as 35 years ago have been re engineered to meet or exceed manufacturer’s specifications. Where necessary or advantageous, sub-systems have been designed or re-engineered, replacing obsolete components with state-of-the-art equipment while still maintaining original signal protocols.

Today, TMS expertise extends to all areas of marine automation  and controls.   We specialize in providing solutions  for both new and retrofit applications using leading edge commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components .

When you need replacement or service with your control systems, automation or electronics applications, look to TMS to provide the innovation, hardware, software, commissioning and training for your vessel and crew.
