Crestchic, the largest specialist loadbank manufacturer and supplier in the world, has recently completed its fifth cruise liner engine test at the Meyers shipyard in Turku, Finland; working alongside leading industry-established generator and turbine companies.

The work involved transportation and on-site management of a 20MVA loadtest operating at 11kV/60Hz utilising two 6MVA Resistive/Reactive and two 6MVA Resistive loadbanks. Completing the package, Crestchic also provided the associated multi-tap and fixed transformers, distribution equipment and over 100m of MV and LV cabling.

Simon Butler, Technical Support Manager at Crestchic, said: “We were contracted to test the turbines on the ‘Mien Shiff’, a TUI group luxury cruise liner, while it was at the Meyers shipyard in Finland.

“Our rental division worked tirelessly to ensure we met all customer deadlines, allowing us to boast a first-class service that we are very much renowned for across the marine and shipyards sectors.”
