Ships with electrical safety

On-board power supply

From diesel to thruster - staying safe on the way

On-board power supply

Some large vessels include sanitary areas and operating theaters for surgeries.   These are very similar to those in land based hospitals or small treatment centers.  Bender is a capable partner in this area and provides code compliant solutions and expertise.

Onshore power supply

Always on the safe side, even on shore

Onshore power supply

For port operators and shipbuilders, setting up an onshore power supply represents a considerable undertaking. Transformer stations and cables to the quay need to be set up on land. These are mostly brought on-board via booms and connected to one or more points. Not only the tides, but also the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code must be taken into consideration. It is important that the monitoring equipment on board the ship and on shore are synchronised as otherwise there can be problems with fault detection. Bender products can be set up so that there are not two measuring systems in a single power circuit. Ask us!

Cabins, accommodation, event areas

Grounded systems - as safe on board as on shore

Cabins, accommodation, event areas

Accommodation and cabins on ships can be exposed to problems with the electrical system within seconds which can only be found manually with a great deal of time and experience. This involves the risk of electric shock and machine downtime. With a multi-channel residual current system (ground-fault monitoring), an emerging problem can be detected, reported and repaired quickly.

Galleys

Ground-fault monitoring in the galley

Galleys

The galleys on ships are very prone to electrical faults which can only be detected manually with plenty of experience and a great deal of time. Especially the grills and steamers often cause problems. In all these applications, people can be injured or killed. With a multi-channel residual current system (ground-fault monitoring), an emerging problem can be detected much earlier than with a conventional GFCI system and repaired before it becomes critical. Another advantage: The whole galley does not have to be shut down if one device is faulty.

Radar, sonar, weapons systems, fire control

Fault detection even at high frequencies

Radar, sonar, weapons systems

On all ships, it is important that they remain fully controllable in all situations and, for example, the radar, sonar and weapons systems are operational at all times. Ground-fault monitoring devices from Bender can easily handle what are sometimes very high-frequency currents and guarantee continuous operation in every situation. Any electrical faults in parts of the whole system are quickly detected and reported and can then be repaired or replaced within a short space of time.

Sanitary areas

Compact electrical safety in operating theatres and intensive care units

Sanitary areas
In terms of equipment, sanitary areas on board ships are similar to those in large doctors’ surgeries or small hospitals with their own operating theatres. Bender is also a capable partner in this area.
