»Covering a 4 km area, the distance between generators was an unusual challenge solved using DEIF’s AGC-4.«
Providing full generator cover for the entire ferry terminal
Being a major transport hub, the requirement for a secure power supply at the Port of Dover is essential.
The risk of potential power outages lead to the decision to upgrade the existing embedded generation system to provide full generator cover for all areas of the ferry terminal.
DEIF assisted with the application requirements, supplying AGC-4 Advanced Generator Controllers for local and remote control of mains connection, island operation, mains synchronisation and export control.
The Eastern Docks site required a fibre optic communication connection between generators over an extensive 4 km area for remote monitoring and generator functionality.
Using DEIF’s patent pending Emulation Software, the solution was fully factory tested to comply with these distances prior to installation. Port of Dover Great Britain’s Gateway to Europe, the Port of Dover is recognised as one of the busiest passenger ferry ports in the world.
