Marina Power Connection
BERTH INSTRUCTIONS FOR CONNECTION TO THE MARINA
LOW VOLTAGE (240 VOLT) ELECTRICAL SUPPLY
This marina provides power for use on your craft with a direct connection to the marina low-voltage (240 volts) electrical supply which is connected to a copper-based marina electrical protective earthing system. An isolating transformer fitted on board to isolate the low-voltage electrical system of your craft from the marina low-voltage electrical supply may reduce corrosive activity caused by the coupling of your craft to the copper based marina electrical protective earthing system and/or other craft.
The earthing of conductive parts on crafts with non-metallic hulls may result in degradation of timber (including wooden plugs in craft of reinforced plastic construction.)
YOUR POWER LEAD MUST BE A 15Amp EXTENSION CORD IN VERY GOOD CONDITION. IT MUST BE THE CORRECT LENGTH AND HAVE AUSTRALIAN STANDARD SOCKET AND PLUG FITTINGS.
ANY DAMAGED OR OLD LEADS MUST BE REPLACED AND ANY SUSPECT LEADS WILL NEED TO BE CERTIFIED AND TAGGED BY A LICENSED ELECTRICIAN, OR A NEW LEAD PURCHASED.
YOUR CRAFT’S LOW VOLTAGE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM MUST COMPLY WITH AS/NZS 3004
- The electrical supply at this marina is 240 Volts, 50 Hz supplied by socket-outlets which will accommodate a Standard plug. The maximum available current is 15 Amps.
- Where a craft is provided with more than one low-voltage electrical supply, the supplies must have the same method of connection, that is, by connection through an isolating transformer with the hull and conductive parts bonded, or by connection with an isolating transformer.
- Precautions should be taken to prevent the supply lead from sagging or falling into the water and, particularly, to prevent either end of the supply lead falling into the water if it should become disengaged.
Only one craft supply lead should be connected to any one socket-outlet.
The supply lead should be in one length, and should not be used while coiled.
- The entry of moisture and salt into a craft’s appliance-inlet may cause a hazard. Examine carefully and clean before connecting to the marina low-voltage electrical supply.
- It is dangerous for unskilled persons to attempt repairs or alterations. If any difficulties arise, consult the marina management.
- Vessels wishing to enter the Bayview Marina arriving from Overseas, Cairns, Torres Straight Islands need to obtain approval before they will be allowed to enter the marina. You will need to check with the NT Fisheries.
NT Fisheries 0413 381 094
- Ensure the marina low-voltage electrical supply is switched off and the flexible cord is disconnected.
- The supply lead should be disconnected first form the marina socket-outlet and then from the craft appliance inlet. Any cover that may be provided to protect the appliance inlet from the weather should be securely replaced. The supply lead should be coiled up and stored in a dry location where it will not be damaged.
