A 310 kVA Shore Power Converter was retrofitted and commissioned on the iconic yacht Limitless in 2021. To make better use of available space, the system was modularised with transformer and electronics separately installed. The cabinet was painted using Awlgrip to keep the engine room appearance consistent. The electronics cabinet can be converted from sealed water cooling to forced air by adjusting using the front system panel. The Ship's Bus is 440V IT and to maintain high impedance integrity, the output is fully isolated. To improve future customer support, the M controller was installed.
The majestic and iconic Hetairos upgraded their Shore Power Converter in 2016 to reduce generator runtime when in harbour. To improve sailing performance, the unit was positioned in the bow compartment space and the system is structurally reinforced to facilitate hull forces under sail. Installed in a restricted location, the system is sealed and water cooled using the ship's chilled water supply. A graphic display was installed in the engine room for monitoring and control.
M/Y Falkor is a newly commissioned oceanographic research vessel operated by the Schmidt Ocean Institute. To reduce environmental impact whilst in harbour, a Shore Power Converter was installed. The system has 10 levels of built-in redundancy with two galvanically isolated and independent inputs, allowing connection to any worldwide shore supply. The converter has a 690V 60Hz output which is isolated from the ship's IT bus and the M controller provides in-depth monitoring of the system which can be used for remote diagnostics as it travels to remote parts of the globe.
