Customer: Fitjar Mekaniske Verksted AS
Vessel name: Seihav
Due to the space available onboard Seihav, Fitjar Mekaniske needed a filter solution that would be able to fit into to the main engine room, which can often exceed 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit). At temperatures this high, there is a risk of equipment overheating and/or malfunction.
With a live product to maintain and transport, Fitjar Mekaniske aimed to minimize risk as much as possible. So they sought a partner with a proven solution and tested technology that would also help them meet the DNV GL requirement for a THDU limit of 8% and an individual harmonic limit of 5%.
"FMVAS is a unique customer of Comsys, who has embraced the power quality dimensioning with optimized space, weight and cost, that comes from using a 6pulse with active filters. This in turn has enabled us to work together on many projects with dynamic loads, "Seihav" was very specific since we faced a retrofit with the limited space and cost restrictions at hand, that FMVAS solved in the best possible way."
