Power supply components and services for marine applications

October 2020 Electrical Power & Protection

Vert Energy, a specialist in electric power generation (EPG) and electro-mechanical power transmission (EMPT), works closely with the marine and offshore sector offering the supply of quality branded components and the support of a comprehensive repair and maintenance service.

The company’s DEIF power management systems encompass diesel, gas and hydro control technology for offshore vessels and on/offshore platforms, as well as commercial, military and leisure vessels. Special vessel applications include dredgers, fishing vessels, heavy lift ships and pipe laying vessels. DEIF’s safe and reliable systems ensure optimum performance, high accuracy, minimal maintenance requirements and reduced downtime. The company’s ‘green technology’ focuses on energy efficiency, fuel optimisation and reduced emissions.

DEIF products for marine and offshore applications include analog instrumentation, single- and multi-function controller platforms and engineered solutions for the offshore oil and gas industry’s ships and rigs.

These user-friendly controllers, which eliminate the need for external controllers, encompass advanced load dependent stop/start controls, integrated remote control from alarm and monitoring systems, long-time parallel operation diesel/shaft generators and combined emergency/harbour generators.

“An important part of Vert Energy’s service to the shipping industry is the highly technical installation and repair work undertaken out at sea by factory trained Vert engineers,” says Grant Robertson, managing director, Vert Energy. “A reliable power supply is a top priority in shipping. For this reason, Vert Energy has tailored its capability to assist vessel owners – not only with routine maintenance programmes, but also in emergency breakdown situations – with no interference to the daily activities of the vessel.

“Vert Energy’s field services encompass reassembly, installation and commissioning, inspections and diagnostics, as well as on-site maintenance and repair.

“Recent projects include the rewinding of a 750 kVA exciter stator, in situ below deck, on board a vessel out at sea. There were no interruptions to the normal operation of the ship. Vert technicians have also installed and commissioned the retrofitment of new generators on board a vessel. These units were tested under various loads and operating conditions at sea.”

Other products in Vert Energy’s range include Leroy Somer Alternators, electric motors and drives, ASCO automatic transfer switches, API Covrad radiators and Avtron and Froment load banks, as well as customised control panels. Allight Sykes lighting towers are also available.
