UK-based Crestchic has delivered a made-to-order load bank to Taiwan for on board ship generator testing by the CSBC Corporation.
Crestchic said it delivered the 6250kVA resistive / reactive load bank to CSBC (formerly known as China Ship Building Corporation) to the ship building facility in Keelung, through its distributor DDR Enterprise Corp.
The load bank— Crestchic’s fifth order from CSBC— is a multi-voltage, multi-frequency unit at 0.8pf and is housed in a 30ft container, Crestchic said.
The unit “will be used during ship building and ship repair, to allow for testing of the on board generator sets, and to enable multiple generators to be paralleled on a common busbar”.
Crestchic sales director Paul Brickman said: “The ship building industry is at the foundation of our business as the need for reliable propulsion and back-up power in the marine environment is paramount.”
