MAIN ELECTRICAL PANEL AND SYSTEM
240/120 Volt 60 cycle 3 phase system.
The panel is fed by 2x 100 amp shore cords with Glendinning system and two Cat generators
The shore power is fed through a 40 KVA Atlas power conversion system.
The main panel is a split buss system which allows you to run the ship off one or two cords, one or two gen sets or a combination of them. The generators are sized so that one set can run the vessel under normal use. There is a ground monitoring system integrated into the panel.
The system is backed up by a Xantrex Trace 4000 inverter system which is fed from a 10 8D battery bank (replaced 2014) (house system). The bank can be charged via the inverter or the main engines. The inverter feeds a selection of house services including all of the refrigerators and freezers on the vessel, selected lights and power outlets through out the vessel. The inverter allows you to go dead ship for over 72 hours giving you the ability to shut down all systems when at anchor or dock and leave the vessel for shore excursions secure in the knowledge that basic systems are operating and all food is being kept to temperature. Should you lose gen power while at sea you have a extended amount of time to bring systems back on line while still operating on selected AC power systems.
The DC panel is separate from the AC panels.
All pump controls are remote located in their own control panels.
An Alfa Laval Model MIB 303 fuel cleaner (serviced May 2014) is integrated into the fuel transfer system and mounted on a drip tray. All fuel can be transferred through the Alfa Laval from and to all tanks. The Alfa Laval system can be set up on long trips to draw fuel from the two main tanks (4500 gal each) to feed the day tank, the day tank will then overflow back to the main tanks to create a continually circulating system of clean fuel and assures you that your day tank is always cool and full. The day tank holds 1000 gals and will supply fuel for 44 hours at a cruising speed of 10 knots. This allows you to transfer fuel every 24 hours and still have a 20 hours in reserve. The Day tank is set between the main fuel tanks and surrounded by fuel on 3 sides. The fuel in the larger tanks acts as a heat sink to help keep the fuel in the day tank cool and at a constant temperature for maximum efficiency of the engines. The fuel transfer value system is easy to use and there is a tray mounted above it for storage of small items.
There is a total of 5 fuel tanks which include: two main tanks and a day tank in the engine room and also a mid tank and a forward tank. Fuel can be transferred using a 120 volt high speed pump @ 68 gpm, the Alfa Laval or a 24 volt back up pump @15 gpm. The vessel can receive fuel from a truck at over 80 gpm.
Tanks are as follows:
Forward tank 1500 gal
Midships tank 2200 gal
Port main tank 4500 gal
