Marine isolation transformers
Kent based marine energy company, Energy Solutions, has added to its range of marine isolation transformers for shore power supply for both the leisure and commercial sectors.
The company’s latest addition is a 63 amp auto boost transformer that selects between two input tappings with 208 volt and 240 volt nominals. It’s well suited to USA specification boats that need the flexibility to pick up two phases of a 208 volt, 3 phase supply.
“Our products are unique because there are not many companies, if any others in the UK, that produce isolation transformers specifically for the marine industry with ABYC & Lloyds compliance,” Mark Kemsley, sales manager, Energy Solutions told Boating Business.
He told BB that the market split for its isolation transformers is 80/20 towards the leisure sector at the moment, which is why the company is looking at attending Seawork International this year to also market the products more towards the commercial sector.
Energy Solutions offers single and three phase custom units including a three phase to single phase Its standard models include 10, 16, 32, 50, 63 & 100-amp shore capacities at 230V.
As well as standard capacities, the range also includes voltage conversion models and autotransformers for applications where voltage conversion, but no isolation, is required.
An isolation transformer eliminates any electrical continuity between shore power and the ship and eliminates the risk of galvanic corrosion between the ship’s hull and other metal objects.
Shore power is fed to the primary side of the transformer and the ship is connected to the output side.
