Electrical Power on Healy is different than what you are used to on shore.
APC makes several types of uninterruptible power supplies (700, 1500, and 3000 VA) for shipboard use: http://www.apc.com/products/special_products/index.cfm. Only units that are marked for shipboard use are acceptable as these are ungrounded and equipped with switching to break both L1 and L2. The larger units are rack mounted. There may be other suitable vendors, but this is the one that I recall being quoted by MLCP(t) for backing up WHEC navigational electronics.
The ship will provide outlet strips if needed in the lab areas. Please talk to
STARC personnel or a Marine Science Technician about using the proper
power strip in the labs.
