Electromechanics install and maintain production machines and lifting equipment on site. Following technical drawings, they assemble motors, bearings or variable speed drives, and make electrical connections. He/she makes various adjustments, checks that everything is working properly and intervenes in the event of a breakdown.


The day-to-day work of an electromechanics technician in a shipyard can be summed up as follows:

  • Install machines and hoists according to technical drawings
  • Establish electrical connections
  • Maintain and troubleshoot machines/lifting equipment (cleaning, checking electrical circuit insulation, greasing bearings, adjustments)
  • Carry out various tests to find the cause of malfunctions
  • Replace defective components and return machines to service.
  • Gather all necessary information, draw up the work report and forward it to the line manager, along with updated documents concerning work carried out, problems encountered, adjustments made and any remarks or observations.
  • Keep technical documentation up to date.
  • Clean and tidy work area


    • Mathematics - Knowledge of arithmetic, algebra, geometry and their applications.
    • Design - Reading blueprints, logical assembly and disassembly, basic knowledge of industrial drawings.
    • Mechanics - Knowledge of machines and tools (design, use, repair and maintenance).
    • Knowledge of the principles of physics and electricity.
    • Knowledge of individual and collective protective measures.
    • Knowledge of standards and rules applicable to electrical equipment.
    • Knowledge of naval vocabulary
    • Maintain and repair ventilation systems, automated systems, production machines, site electrical distribution and lifting equipment (overhead cranes, aerial work platforms).
    • Work on medium-voltage installations
    • Identify components from a drawing, a diagram or without a diagram or parts list
    • Lay out components according to layout diagram
    • Make connections according to a wiring diagram or without a wiring diagram
    • Make connections without a wiring diagram
    • Locate and diagnose faults and malfunctions
    • Identify and replace defective components
    • Build an electrical panel (e.g. dock panel)
    • Carry out functional and safety tests, measurements and adjustments
    • Carry out Control-Prevention-Follow-up operations
    • Check and verify the condition of equipment in service.
    • Punctual, diligent, and motivated
    • Have a team spirit
    • Attentive to details
    • Organized and methodical
    • Arm-hand stability - The ability to keep hand and arm stable.
    • Control accuracy - The ability to quickly and repeatedly adjust machine controls to exact positions.
    • Finger dexterity - The ability to make precisely coordinated movements of the fingers of one or both hands to grasp, manipulate or assemble very small objects.
    • Near vision - The ability to see details at close range (within a few feet of the observer).
    • Ability to adapt to the company's culture and environment.
    • Ability to work independently.
    • Efficiently organize work time within deadlines.


  • 2/3 years' training (CAP/ BEP) in mechanics or national certification (NC3/NC4) in mechanics
  • At least 3 years' experience in the field


The Electromechanic receives instructions from his or her superior (team leader or department manager, ship's captain).
Depending on the assignment, the electromechanic may work alone or in pairs. Team spirit is important to ensure good communication and coordination of work.


The main performance criteria for an electromechanic are :

  • Quality and cleanliness of work performed
  • Method and time for efficient execution of tasks
  • Observance of protective measures and compliance with supervisor's instructions
  • Level of motivation and initiative in carrying out tasks Availability (after hours, weekends, holidays, travel)
  • Availability (after hours, weekends, holidays, travel)
  • Level of autonomy
  • Performance of complex tasks


Electro-mechanics work in workshops or on board boats (depending on their tasks). They work in demanding conditions (noise, dust, heat). Their work requires good physical stamina, as they have to stand and work in uncomfortable positions. They are frequently required to move around the site in various workshops. The electromechanical profession requires a certain flexibility in terms of availability at irregular hours, taking into account the urgent and unexpected nature of corrective maintenance. General working conditions require compliance with strict safety standards.

As part of his work, the CNOI provides the mechanic with personal protective equipment and various tools.


Electromechanical work requires the use of dangerous and noisy machinery:

The main occupational hazards for an electromechanic are :

  • Traumatic risk - falls on the same level / falls from heights
  • Entrapment or laceration of hands/arms
  • Handling-related risks (musculoskeletal disorders linked to manual handling/postures)
  • Electrocution/electrification/direct contact burns

NOTE: beyond the legal context, the wearing of PPE is essential according to company policy to limit occupational risks.
