Arab Ship Building and Repair Yard Company (ASRY), a maritime repair and fabrication facility in the Middle East Gulf popular with tanker owners and operators, has deployed power capacitor banks
It has several environmental projects underway, including becoming the first shipyard to achieve global standards in green steel recycling of vessels, accreditation from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, a yard-wide solar panel project under development, in addition to production energy improvements such as LED lighting rigs and a state-of-the-art resource planning system.
The power capacitor banks are the latest addition.
By deploying correcting capacitor banks, the power factor required for the yard equipment, for example welding transformers, compressors, pumps, machines, dehumidifiers and cranes, can be efficiently stepped-down, wasting less energy.
“ASRY is committed to energy efficiency on two fronts,” confirmed ASRY managing director Mazen Matar.
“Firstly for our customers, with our expertise in installing energy efficient products and upgrades on their vessels. Secondly for our community, nation and planet, by reducing the yard’s environmental impact through carbon-reducing initiatives, such as these power capacitor banks.”
