Protection from lightning strikes

Safeguarding marina facilities, valuable yard equipment and all kinds of vessels – from day boats to superyachts – from the devastating impact of lightning strikes is now a straightforward process thanks to innovative CMCE lightning protection technology developed by Sertec Srl.

Much is owed, of course, to the groundbreaking invention of Nikola Tesla in 1916, whose unique insight into electrical principles led to the development of a solution that, unlike the earlier Franklin rod, eliminated the accumulation of charge and thus prevented the conditions conducive to lightning strikes.
Today’s CMCE solution is designed with a universal approach, it operates as a passive sensor system, providing permanent protection by balancing and deionising atmospheric phenomena using one or more compensators. By stabilising the existing electric field in its environment, the CMCE system effectively cancels the formation of ascending tracers, ensuring a neutral state of safety within the protected area.
Solutions are specifically tailored for marina installations and generate long-lasting performance in the harshest marine environments.
