BGI names several new distributors


Colorado-based Blue Guard Innovations has announced several new dealers and distributors for its range of solid-state smart switches and sensors that detect water, as well as oil and fuel spills, in the bilge and engine compartments.

Fort Lauderdale-based Sea & Sea Marine Electric, which specializes in the installation, maintenance and repair of superyacht electronics, is now an installing dealer for BGI products. 

Fort Lauderdale-based Lewis Marine Supply has been appointed to distribute the company’s products.

Maritime Systems Australia has also been named a new distributor of BGI products. 

The BG-One Smart Bilge Pump Switch received a Pittman Innovation 2019 Award in the systems category, an IBEX 2018 product innovation award in the mechanical systems category, and an honorable mention from DAME Design Award 2018 judges in the machinery, propulsion, mechanical and electrical systems and fittings category at METSTRADE in November, according to the company.

BGI also recently launched the BG-Link Wireless Boat Monitoring System, which monitors battery banks, high-water alarms, bilge pump activations, oil and fuel detectors, fire alarms, temperature, AC shore power connections and security sensors. The system is available with no subscription fee in its wi-fi configuration.
