Abu Dhabi marina installs new power

Yas Marina in Abu Dhabi, UAE, is set to install five 1,000-amp (per phase) supply pedestals, the largest ever manufactured, to answer the growing power demands of the biggest vessels in the superyacht fleet.

Camper & Nicholsons Marinas has worked with Rolec Services Ltd. to develop this ultra-high capacity facility, which exceeds the already high offering of 600-amp supplies that previously represented the upper limit for yacht shore power. These new pedestals will enable vessels to draw up to 3,000 amps from each of the five units.
“As the new generation of superyachts grows ever larger, their power requirements are starting to stretch even the highest capacity electricity supplies that marinas can provide,” marina General Manager Cedric Le Rest said. “So we’ve taken a big step to ensure we can cater for current and future yachts, right up to the top of the size range.”

Yas Marina has berthing available up to 150m. It charges 4 US cents per kilowatt for power and 3.6 US cents per imp gallon for water.

The marina is undergoing an expansion and refurbishment project, which will provide more and better shore-side facilities for owners, guests, captains and crew.
