Boris Valentin wanted a setup that he could rely on, no matter what situation he might end up in.
“When the waves get high and the storm is tearing in the rig, you need to know that you can trust your power system!”
Boris has built oilrigs for several years and knows what the ocean can “offer” when the storms come sweeping and thus what the gear used on the sea needs to withstand. He is an engineer and did solid research before choosing the power system he wanted to embark on Emma.
Emma and Boris sails long-distance! Really long! Emma is also Boris home and therefore Boris wants to have the best and most reliable power system he can find.
Boris spent a long time trying to figure out what he needed. Not only what his power requirements were, but also what interfaces he needed to get it all together, and he needed to get, eg. the tank level gauges, to send data around the system and to all the displays around Emma.
Boris chose Mastervolt and built the system around the Masterbus network. He did this because he knew Mastervolt’s qualities and because his research showed that Mastervolt could meet his functional requirements and the high quality.
Boris chose to design the system so all power consumption comes from the batteries and thus did not allow 230 volts from the shore connection flow to access his 230-volt installations on board.
All 230 volts board comes via Emma’s Mastervolt inverter and thus from the batteries. Since Emma has a steel hull, Boris is very aware of galvanic corrosion and chose, therefore, this “clean” installation.
We have been allowed to show Emma’s electrical design and found that Boris has done a great job, both in the design and physical installation.
Here at Energig we are looking forward to seeing a great installation and are happy to support Boris and Emma in the years to come.
