this as an experienced engineer
that was involved in the Assessment of an Insurance
Claim when an owner converter a 16 metre Cat to Electric
dříve without considering the weight of thé batteries
and how that would affect the stability intergrity of the wing deck
.A catastrophic event happened with the burn out of the Electrical
Particilar vćre needs to bevtaken in the selection og areas for batteries
as well as Electrical Wiring
which contributed to the failures as maritime standards and drop Looping werent engaged řr followed.
Thus assisted Salt water
to follows Wiring
to terminations And shorted the systems causing a fire.
The isolation couldnt be accessed as IT was installed in crampt cupboards under the wing decks.
The physical weight of thé batteries caused a structural failure in the wing Deck
allowing the water
inbto cause a fire rendering the boat
a total loss from Its Peopulsion perspective.
Im interested to talk to others that have Oceanvolt systems installed and og they have any problems.
The aim is awareness and to stop this happening in order vessels where Owners are led i to technical decisions with little guidance řr experience by those Selling the products and even less input from structural designers on the effects of weight on the vessels.
