Smart bilge switch honored

ADVERTISEMENT

Colorado-based Blue Guard Innovations (BGI) was honored with a Pittman Innovation Awards in the Systems category this winter for its BG-One smart bilge switch, which helps prevent oil or fuel from being pumped into waterways. Other winners in the category include Balmar’s next-generation battery monitor, the SG200; and Triskel Marine’s Integrel advanced generator replacement system, which was also named Overall Winner.

BGI has a range of patented smart switches and sensors, including the BG-HW high water sensor and the BG-SWA, a combined bilge pump switch and high water alarm.

The Pittman award is named after Freeman K. Pittman, SAIL magazine’s long-time technical editor who passed away from Lou Gehrig’s disease in 1996. The annual awards recognize exceptional products developed by the sailing industry.

BGI’s BG-One Smart Bilge Pump Switch also received the IBEX 2018 Product Innovation Award in the Mechanical Systems category in October.
