New genset control panel

ABATO has designed a new control panel concerning the emergency power generation for one of the largest intersections of internet in the Netherlands which will be applied in the end of year of 2017.  This control panel implies a phased execution in which there are continuously 5 out of 6 generators on standby in case of an emergency power breakdown and it works with 4 power connections.

The image displays the setup used to test the control panel.

Will we see you at the STL Messe Kalkar?

In the special edition of the Binnenvaartkrant (inland shipping newspaper), there is an article about our transparent power generator calculator that we have placed on ours website. This application allows (potential) customers to calculate their own marine engine, power generator and maintenance and receive the corresponding price.

Also, we will be at the Shipping Technics Logistics trade fair on September 26 and 27 in Kalkar. Feel free to visit us at stand 212 where we will be happy to tell you more about ABATO and what we can do for you.

For the Amsterdam RAI a new 1850 kVA generator is installed in the summer of 2015. This aggregate will replace the current 7 dieselaggregates. The aggregate will gradually magnetize 33 transformers of 1000 kVA each with a special regulation and will also operates the 10 kV power switch.
Feadship Emmeline

For Feadship Emmeline 2, there are delivered two new engines. The engines are because of the combination of high power at low speed and low consumption ideal engines for this ship.
