USA: OutBack Provides Backup Power for Sea Voyages

OutBack Power Technologies, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of advanced power electronics for renewable energy, backup power and mobile applications, today announced several of the marine organizations who use OutBack Power’s marine-grade power solutions to ensure peace of mind for mariners and boaters who depend on clean, reliable AC power during sea voyages.

With OutBack’s solutions for marine applications, organizations such as Emery Electric, International Rescue Group and Nordhavn Yachts can count on safe seafaring with reliable onboard power even miles from shore.

The international demands of travel and trade often necessitate extended voyages on the high seas. Rising diesel and gasoline prices place a premium on fuel efficiency for ships; therefore, any extended power or lengthened life of marine equipment means a steep advantage in cost savings and safety. For marine applications, power electronics must be rugged, water-resistant, dependable and low-maintenance.

“Reliable and efficient power is vital for travel, operations and safety onboard any size or type of seafaring vessel,” said Harvey Wilkinson, general manager of OutBack Power. “When miles from the nearest shoreline or port, loss of power is more than an inconvenience; it can become a matter of life or death if vessels lose power, and with it, navigation and steering in choppy waters. Marine customers trust us to deliver the power management solutions they need to ensure safe travels and reduced downtime.”

Vessels outfitted with OutBack Power sealed FX inverter/chargers use them as standalone battery chargers for on-board diesel generators or to power critical electrical components for steering, navigation and fire pump hauling. Specially designed to survive in environments that would quickly render useless other marine inverter/chargers, OutBack Power’s die-cast aluminum chassis with powder-coated finish prevents corrosion and the advanced sealed design and special water and salt-resistant internal and external componentry keeps the FX inverter waterproof with gaskets and o-ring seals on seams and openings.
