                        Challenges

                        • Operational costs by remaining in low voltage distribution in accordance with regulations.
                        • High level of safety by reducing the risk of black out, fire and switchboard destruction.
                        • Compactness by avoiding HV LV transformer installation and reducing safety distance.

                        Solutions

                        • As installed power on board ships and offshore platforms increases permanently, electrical distribution  has to shift from LV design to HV design. The Masterpact UR (Ultra Rapid) bus tie circuit breaker allows much higher installed power with a low voltage design which is achieved by strongly limiting the very high short circuit current and related fault energy.

                        Value Proposition

                        • A unique solution to meet switchboard performance (thermal and electro-dynamic withstand).
                        • Mimimum maintenance as designed from Masterpact NW.
                        • A short circuit peak current reduced from 30% to 40%.
                        • Customised short circuit calculation guaranteed by computer software according to standards.
                        • Investment cost saving by optimising circuit breaker selection.

                        Differentiation Factors

                        • A unique advanced patented technical solution allowing fast reclosing after breaker trip.
                        • A reliable and simple opening technology in 1ms.
                        • guaranteed complete solution in terms of  Schneider Electric circuit-breaker coordination.
