The DekaSmartGrid is an intelligent solution that consists of technology and software to optimise the use of power onboard. Superyachts use generators that rarely work to their best in a conventional setup. The DekaSmartGrid ensures that they are used more efficiently and that any surplus power generated is stored in batteries for use later. This results in lower fuel consumption, while the generators will not suffer from the build-up of soot – enhancing the performance and lifespan of the generators.
- Silent period
- Environment friendly
- Fewer generator starts
- Shore support

Power generation resources are used efficiently
DekaSmartGrid ensures that power generation resources are used efficiently. It controls and loads generators so that these are used at optimal efficiency. Any extra power generated is used to charge a battery pack. This stored energy can be used to meet peak demands exceeding generator capacity, in place of shore connection capacity or for silent periods. Efficient use of generators means fewer starts and lower fuel consumption, this reducing operational cost of the power plant. It also minimizes the buildup of soot, enhancing the performance and lifespan of the generators while benefiting the environment and reducing maintenance cost.
The addition of batteries provides luxury comfort with emission and noise free periods on board.
