The New ES LoadBank – Optimising Generator loading for Superyachts
2 December 2007
Energy Solutions showcased their new ES LoadBank at METS 2007. Designed for optimising generator loading in Superyachts, response to the units was positive from engineers and owners alike.
The positivity stems from the problematic issue of sizing generators for super and mega yachts. This is notoriously difficult because of the large variations in onboard power requirements between seasons, times of the day and periods with and without guests. This leads to substantial swings in power requirements traditionally leaving the generators operating lightly loaded in the lows. The problem with this is that in order to get the maximum life expectancy from a generator it should ideally run at sufficient load to ensure clean running. When a generator runs under capacity it’s working life is cut short and the generator runs with soot emissions.
The ES LoadBank addresses this problem directly, it is a sophisticated generator loading system that ensures that a sufficient base load is applied to the generator at all times.
Energy Solutions’ in-house design and engineering team have developed the new ES LoadBank using their extensive knowledge of the superyacht market. Manufacturing the units at their UK headquarters they have developed optional extras to be used with the LoadBank such as the LCD Touch Control Panel. This can go in the yacht’s control room to allow remote monitoring of all aspects of the LoadBank set up and status.
Energy Solutions Managing Director Paul Holland concludes: “We are delighted with the response so far to the ES LoadBank. We see it as an integral part of the engine fit for superyachts and as such offer extensive world-wide technical support with each unit. Part of that service is to undertake a complete technical and installation consultation, giving on-site assessment and evaluation to ensure smooth installation.”
