By | Uncategorised | No Comments

WhisperPower has obtained a follow up order for three Generator Systems of 27 kVA each, powering the on-board electrical systems of 3 new Search And Rescue (SAR) Boats, to be constructed by the famous shipbuilding company Fassmer, located close to Bremen, Germany.

Fassmer has designed and constructed a large number of search and rescue vessels, as well as patrol and police boats in the past, many of them equipped with WhisperPower generator systems. The SAR boats will be used by the German Rescue foundation and will be launched in 2020, 2021 and 2022.

WhisperPower is manufacturing a specially designed generator system (model M SQ 27) which allows a seamless power transfer between ship and shore.

Introduction safe Lithium Ion battery as replacement for the lead-acid battery

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

With the introduction of the Ion Power Basic, a safe Lithium Ion battery formulated with Lithium, Iron and Phosphate cells (LiFePO4), a new era has begun with the perfect sustainable alternative to the conventional lead-acid battery.

Thanks in part to the automotive industry and developments in the field of electric driving, the battery industry has developed at an exponential rate. Lithium Ion technology in particular has undergone major development. The key advantages of the Lithium Ion battery is the long service life and the lack of a memory effect. Until now, the Lithium Ion battery, which in most cases, unlike the WhisperPower Ion Power Basic, has a chemical composition of Lithium-Cobalt oxide, has been used primarily in consumer electronics and not for more demanding applications because of their sensitivity to overheating and spontaneous combustion.

At the end of the 1990s, however, a new, safer Lithium chemical composition was developed based on Lithium, Iron and Phosphate (LiFePO4) which now, 20 years on, has been optimised to such an extent that the Lithium Ion battery has become a very interesting and viable replacement for the lead-acid battery. The higher initial investment is more than offset by the many advantages the Lithium Ion battery delivers in comparison to the lead-acid battery. The lifespan is up to 3 times longer, the battery is 50% lighter and more compact, 100% of the battery capacity can be used instead of 30 to 50%, the capacity loss in cold environments is minimal, the battery can easily be placed in any position and space and can be charged extremely quickly and efficiently using the integrated Battery Management System (BMS). In addition, the output voltage is constantly stable and the peak power remains high even if the battery is partially or almost completely discharged (flat charge-discharge curve). Other features include the fact that the battery is maintenance free and does not have to be continuously connected to a (trickle) charger if the battery is temporarily not being used.

Cell balancing, also known as the BMS, which ensures that each of the cells in the battery receive the correct voltage, is integrated in the battery. The consumers and the charge system can be connected directly to the poles. In order to prevent deep discharge, it is beneficial to place a switch-off relay between the battery and the consumers. A bi-stable relay is offered as an option as well as the charge system, which can be in the form of a WhisperPower battery charger, a WhisperSolar panel or a alternator. For optimum results, the Ion Power Basic is best charged with a constant voltage of up to 100% full charge. An energy monitor, the WBM, is also available as an option.

The Lithium Ion battery is the future. The market for this type of battery is so large and diverse and there are countless applications. This ranges from electric forklifts and golf carts to large scissor lifts and lifting platforms. The camper world has been waiting for years for a sustainable, compact and lightweight energy solution like this, plus the WhisperPower Lithium batteries are also ideal for electric sailing. The Ion Power Basic is an addition to our existing product range of industrial Ion Power batteries of 90 and 160 Ah with which larger systems of up to 100 kWh can be built. In the coming years we will be expanding the range further so we can also deliver larger energy storage capacities.

METs 2018

METS 2018: a lot of wow moments

After a few weeks of intensive activity and positive excitement, we are back in our daily rhythm. This had everything to do with METS 2018, the largest exhibition in the world in the field of maritime products for the maritime sector. More than 40 distributors visited our annual ‘Learning Days’ in our company building in Drachten, which were held prior to METS, where many new products and systems were shown thorough training on the ins and outs of technology.

An important part of our training program was an active workshop at Neptune Marine in Aalst, the producer of the well-known Elling Yachts, on the Monday for the METS. There, 20 of our international distributors were addressed by director Anton van den Bos, who highlighted the secret of the great Elling succes. The hulls of all yachts are made of fiberglass reinforced polyester – a special laminate with twaron that makes the vessel virtually unsinkable. An important advantage of these systems from WhisperPower is the fact that practically all functions, including the almost standardly installed stabilization (‘anti-roll’) systems, can work without a generator. In the latest E4 a new Anti-Roll All-in-one is installed, a product from DMS Holland that will maximize the comfort at sea.
All Elling yachts are equipped with the New School systems from WhisperPower: the E6 with an extensive energy system with 14 kVA inverters as ‘main generator’, and the smaller E3 and E4 yachts with a 7 kVA variant. The workshop participants were surprised by the very professional installation, in which the Ion Power Plus batteries took a prominent place. All Elling yachts can be connected to the land voltage worldwide without any restriction in voltage and frequency.

METS exhibition days
The large attendance of companies and people who visited our stand proves the A status of the WhisperPower brand. A historical moment the celebration of our 10th Anniversary, which we could celebrate with very many at the end of the first METS day. Accompanied by a lot of champagne of course!

This year our motto ‘100% Comfort, 0% Emission’ was clearly visible on the billboards of our demonstration verhicle and on the stand. An unique proposition that we, as the only company in the industry, can offer to our customers from a single brand supply, as one entire system. Important part of these systems is integration of the backup generator, the power electronics and the batteries to the central monitoring and the glass bridge with connectivity to Garmin, Raymarine and Simrad. Main read-out and control functions:

  • Shore power connection information
  • Genset on/off auto settings
  • WhisperPower Genverter or SQ 1500 status information
  • Operation information on the genset device(s) including operating hours
  • Battery status and smart Ah couting, time-remaining
  • Battery charger, inverter/charger status and read-out control and command
  • Monitoring AC- and DC-loads
  • Control of the shore power with current limitation

WhisperPower’s added value
During the METS fair this year it became clear that more and more series yacht builders are looking for a supplier that can supply all the main electrical components including integration from one brand. They ended up with the conclusion that WhisperPower offers the best solution. Many customers were also looking for a decent compact, high-quality, smart generator solution for the 230 V 50 Hz (120 V 60 Hz) on board power provision, which was found in the new Piccolo program from WhisperPower. With convincing live demonstrations in the demonstration vehicle for customers that wanted to hear the gensets running. The increasingly extensive Orange range with inverters, battery chargers, Combi’s and Solarkits attracted many volume boat builders as an optimal solution for smaller energy systems.
