Allowing vessels to plug into an on-shore power supply and shut down their diesel generator during their port stay.
Shore-to-ship power systems allow vessels to plug into an onshore power supply and shut down their auxiliary engines while berthed. The ship´s power load is seamlessly transferred to the shore-side power supply without disruption to onboard services. This substantially reduces greenhouse gas emissions, noise and vibrations. As a full-scope supplier, ABB offers turnkey shore connections encompassing fully engineered and integrated systems, state-of-the-art equipment as well as a comprehensive range of services for a complete shore-to-ship solution. The portfolio includes the entire electrical infrastructure needed onshore and onboard – from the receipt of power from the local grid and its adaptation to the vessel’s requirements to the connection of shore power including the onboard system. The array of ABB solutions is suitable for container terminals and city ports. It covers single and multiple frequency applications as well as single and multiple berth arrangements with power ratings to serve even the largest ports. Spatial limitations can be overcome by compact indoor concepts accommodating all major components in buildings. These have a small footprint, are located to ensure smooth dockside operations and match the surrounding environment. The modular solutions also support staged implementation and investments.
