Soft starters for Marine Applications
Motor ratings: 4160V, 110A
Dredging a river is usually done far from a stiff electrical grid. The hydraulic system operating the dredging arm on this barge is designed to withstand the rigors of dredging under the most severe conditions.
In some instances, the distance from the power supply is such that starting the hydraulic motor can cause damage even to a robustly designed hydraulic system due to high inrush currents that create voltage drops greatly exacerbated by long supply cables feeding the barge in the river.
Solcon soft-starters eliminate the high inrush current, voltage drop and mechanical shock that would otherwise damage the system.
Marine engineers know to depend on Solcon when high quality and long term reliability in adverse conditions are essential.
Dredging isolated locations demand the reliability of Solcon soft starters
