Yacht electrical system enables simple power control
Owners of the latest Numarine yacht have precise power monitoring through its helm panels thanks to an electrical system from Energy Solutions.
Marla is the first of three orders for the new 32 XP Explorer series from Numarine and is fitted with an electrical system designed by Energy Solutions.
“We have designed the system so that it can be fitted in sections; and also to have a level of flexibility so that both European and US specification models can use the same power and monitoring system with only a few adaptations,” said Energy Solutions engineering manager, Daniel Cox.
Numarine wanted a simple, intuitive interface that allowed the vessel, which has a range of 3,000 nautical miles and a cruising speed of 12 knots, to run following a logical set of protocols.
The helm panels in the main wheelhouse provide the visual interface with the power and control systems. With a mix of both touchscreen and traditional switches, the panels control everything from generator stop/start to visual displays of open hatches and portholes.
Repeater panels in the crew quarters and engine room mirror key elements of the helm panels allowing multiple monitoring points.
Aiding speed of installation, Energy Solutions supplied the electrical system as a complete package, including detailed wiring diagrams, supply of pre-built panels, programming of PLC’s and design of the HMI’s - allowing the Numarine construction team to install it as the build progresses.
Energy Solutions has already started working on the system for the second boat.
Energy Solutions will be at METSTRADE on stand no 03.221.
