Reliable power supplies for harbours and shipping

August 2015 Electrical Power & Protection

Vert Energy 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.

“An important part of our service to the shipping industry is the highly technical installation and repair work undertaken out at sea by factory trained Vert engineers,” says Vert Energy managing director, Grant Robertson. “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 re-assembly, 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 near Mozambique. There were no interruptions to the normal operation of the ship. Vert technicians have also installed and commissioned the retro fitment of new generators on board a vessel in Namibia. These units were tested under various loads and operating conditions at sea.”

Vert Energy has been appointed exclusive distributors in sub-Saharan Africa for the sales and support of DEIF generator controls.

DEIF power management systems encompass diesel, gas and hydro control technology for offshore vessels and on/offshore platforms, as well commercial, military and leisure vessels. Special vessel applications include dredgers, fishing vessels, heavy lift ships and pipe laying vessels. The safe and reliable systems ensure optimum performance, high accuracy, minimal maintenance 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 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.
