ES LoadBank Case Study

When it comes to running a large yacht effectively there are many areas to consider but the generators are a key element.

The vessel has two M1066T (99kW @ 208V)  Northern Lights generators that were continually suffering from under loading and experiencing exhaust issues which was manifesting itself externally from the vessel. The chief engineer wanted a solution that would extend the life of the generators, powering them to the optimum level to ensure clean running.

The owners of the site were looking to reduce operating costs, but also as a remote site they were keen to find a system that required fewer servicing and refuelling visits.
