Marina Power Connection
VESSEL INSTRUCTIONS FOR CONNECTION TO THE MARINA
This marina provides power for use on your craft with a direct connection to the marina (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 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.
- Beware of electrolysis with within the marina. Make every effort to reduce the risk by taking precautions and reducing stray current. See – Electrolysis Blocker
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 LEAD IN VERY GOOD CONDITION. IT MUST BE THE CORRECT LENGTH AND HAVE AUSTRALIAN STANDARD WEATHERPROOF 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 weatherproof fitting. The maximum available current is 15 Amps.
- 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 electrical supply.
- 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.
