Going adrift in the open sea without electricity can be dramatic for the ship and its crew (sinking, collision, capsizing, etc.). This is why it is essential to have a backup power supply that is 100% reliable.
A ship’s energy needs are substantial (comfort, lighting, transmission, navigation, propulsion, etc.). The electrical system must therefore work perfectly. In the event of loss of the main current, the emergency equipment, namely generators, inverters and batteries, must be able to take over for faultless service continuity, inside the vessel.
To ensure their proper functioning, it is therefore necessary to regularly test this emergency equipment and this mainly happens during periods at the quay.
This is where our equipment comes in. Rentaload offers a wide range of load banks of different powers to carry out your tests: resistive or inductive load banks in single-phase or 3-phase alternating current (230V or 400V) or resistive load banks in direct current (48V – 24V – 460V). It all depends on the equipment to be tested and your initial need. In any case, know that we adapt easily to your own configuration.
Rentaload works in both the military and civil sectors (ships transporting goods, cruise ships or private yachts) and also supplies load banks to many shipbuilders both in France and abroad.
For information, our customers from this sector of activity are mainly shipbuilders, shipyards, engine manufacturers or the French Navy.
“ International Commissioning Engineer (June 2021): We have rented a 50 kW resistive load bank (400V TRI) from Rentaload to test batteries and various equipment for a shipyard. We are very satisfied with the service provided by Rentaload . The team is friendly, available and attentive. Everything was organized, we had no problems. As for the load bank, it worked perfectly and our tests therefore went well! »
