Customer Requirement:

AGL approached Magellan Power to offer their best solution for replacement of 8 X 110V, 500A
DC battery chargers, which were close to end of life. The 110 V DC systems were used to supply
the DC motors (for generator shutdown), DC motors (for boiler section), inverters and some other
ancillary loads.

Magellan Solution:

Magellan Power personnel visited the site of the power station in Muswellbrook, NSW. The main
agenda of the visit was to identify AGL’s needs and to propose a solution that would be highly reliable
and would suit all of the requirements. Magellan proposed a steadfast solution using chopper based
110V, 600A battery chargers and won the contract based on the reliability of the product over its competitors.

• High reliability

Brookfield Rail’s Merredin office regularly sources power chargers from Magellan Power, and we always find it an easy process for new purchases and repairs. Their Sales & Repair Manager Shijo is prompt with responses to our queries, and on one occasion travelled to Merredin to meet with us, which we found extremely helpful.
