The Marina facility provides power for use on your recreational Vessel with a connection to the low voltage electrical supply which is connected to a copper based marina protective earthing system.
An isolating transformer fitted on board your Vessel to isolate the low voltage electrical system from the Marina low voltage electrical system may reduce corrosion activity caused by the coupling of your recreational Vessel's earth to the Marina electrical protective earthing system and/or other recreational Vessel(s).
- Additional sacrificial anodes or galvanic isolators complying with AS/NZS 3004.2 Clause 4.6.4 may be used to reduce these effects (refer AS/NZS 2832 series of Standards for suitable cathodic protection practices).
- Shore Power. The Marina shore power connections located at the service pedestals are wired in accordance with AS/NZS 3004.1 and no isolation transformer is fitted to the shore based service.
- Standard. The power supply is 240V AC 50Hz 15 Amp single phase. Combined RCD and MCB residual current and overload protection is fitted for each outlet and regularly tested to ensure operation. Individual current overload ratings may vary from marina to marina.
- Limited 3 phase supply connections exist and may be made available upon application otherwise the use of 3 phase power outlets is prohibited.
- VESSEL'S ELECTRICAL SYSTEM MUST COMPLY WITH AS/NZS 3004 PRIOR TO CONNECTING TO THE MARINA'S SHORE POWER
- All Vessels connecting to the Marina shore power system must be wired in accordance with AS/NZS 3004.2 and it is the responsibility of the Vessel Owner to ensure that this is observed.
- All Vessels and appliances connecting to the Marina shore power system do so entirely at their own risk and should seek professional advice in order to ensure that their connection is in accordance with the standard AS/NZS 3004.2.
- The flexible chord (Vessel's power lead) shall be heavy duty 3 core (including earthing conductor) sheathed cord type complying with AS 3191.
- It is the responsibility of the Vessel Owner to ensure that the shore power lead used is tested and tagged annually by authorised testers in accordance with Australian Standards and is suitable for the type of outlet to which the connection is made.
- Connection and Disconnection procedures must be followed at all times. Mandatory Requirements when connecting a Vessel to the Marina 240v AC Power Supply:
- Prior to connecting power to any outlet visually check condition of outlet. If there is any sign of damage to outlet or adaptor do not use or connect power. Report any damage to the Marina Office.
- In rain conditions ensure the adaptor is kept dry before plugging in and the power outlet can be connected to safely. If conditions are excessive and determined to be unsafe, postpone connection until more favourable conditions exist.
- It is the responsibility of the Vessel Owner to ensure that the shore power lead used is supported to keep it clear of the seawater, does not present a trip or other hazard and is removed completely and switched off at the outlet when not in use. Electrical leads shall not be positioned across walkways.
- Under no circumstances is any other Vessel's power lead to be unplugged to operate power tools or accessories.
- The Marina will no be held responsible for power outages, mains surges or voltage fluctuations.
Persons are advised not to enter the water in the vicinity or Vessels connected to the Marina shore power, nor Vessels generating power onboard either using generator or other means.
