Load or unload banks for the shipping
and offshore oil and gas industry
Maritime applications demand optimum service delivery and load banks suited to heavy constraints.
Whether in terms of functionality, technical characteristics or marine environment related constraints, KVA can offer load banks able to meet the challenges of the shipping and the offshore oil industry.
They also enable to carry out the indispensable tests on the thermal engines.
KVA designs load banks for the on-board generator test. Designed to comply with marine standards (voltage, frequency), KVA Applications products also integrate environmental constraints (humidity, saline atmosphere, compactness, …)
The space available onboard vessels and oil rigs is extremely limited. The KVA bank, with its resistive elements shielded in stainless steel, offers an attractive power / footprint ratio while promising an excellent resistance to the saline environment.
The systematic presence of batteries on board vessels or submarines requires constant maintenance. The battery packs must be regularly discharged. KVA discharging banks enable you to work at either constant power or constant current, depending on usage.
Since more than 20 years, we use KVA Applications load banks. We are fully satisfied with such robust and reliable products
We bought a load bank that works perfectly for the test of our emergency generator.
We bought a reliable and robust bank that has never had any problems since 2011. We like the 1kW resolution as well as the easy handling.
Our KVA Applications test banks have been running 24 hours a day for 2 years. We greatly appreciate the support of KVA throughout this project.
We appreciate the modularity of the KVA banks that enables us to develop a wide range of resistive and inductive load solutions for our installations.
