The need for reliable back-up power in the marine environment is paramount. A loss of navigation or steering can be catastrophic. A back-up power supply that is proven to be 100% effective, first time, every time, is critical.
Many vessels built today are all-electric. A single power network is supplied by a primary energy source, which can be multiple units of diesel generators or gas turbines.
This integrated power system enables propulsion power to be diverted to on-ship requirements, such as refrigeration on cargo vessels, light, heat and air-conditioning on cruise vessels, and weapon systems on naval ships.
