The flagship product of ISELCO, ElCorrect™, has improved the onboard electrical system of the pelagic fishing vessel Huginn VE55 significantly, according to the vessel’s Chief Engineer, Willum Andersen.
Engineers on board Huginn VE55 had been experiencing problems with the vessel’s main switchboard, as well as other unusual electrical behaviour. Chief Engineer Willum Andersen then contacted the technicians at ISELCO after hearing about the company’s previous work.
Willum Andersen comments:
“We were encountering problems with overload in our electrical system, that’s why we were in contact with ISELCO’s technicians. They installed measurement equipment on board our vessel and came back to us with some interesting results on things, such as THD disturbances that were discovered because of the measurements conducted by the team.”
“ISELCO offered us a solution that could reduce our load and reduce the THD values onboard our vessel. ISELCO also custom made the unit so it would fit the only location we had available on board. We installed this solution and from the first moment we turned on the system, our problem of overloading the ship’s electrical system is no longer there, and we have noticed great a difference in running our engine and generators.”
ISELCO technicians conducted a series of measurements on board the ship and recommended a custom ElCorrect™ solution that would increase the power quality and resolve the issues that were causing problems on board.
ISELCO is an Iceland-based energy consulting and ecological electric company.
