Cavotec shore power technologies are playing a key role in delivering substantial sustainability savings to ports in China.
Cavotec is increasingly combining the separate areas of automated mooring and shore power into an integrated package – one that delivers environmental and operational benefits in parallel, writes Sofus Gedde-Dahl, sales director e-ferries at Cavotec.
The implementation of shore power is one of the main challenges for ports tackling emissions at berth and in surrounding anchorages.
Cavotec is continuing to revolutionise the operation of e-vessels by delivering and maintaining its automated, unmanned, mooring system across Norwegian ferry ports.
Cavotec automated mooring technology has been included in the 2018 UN Global Opportunity Report that highlights how innovative technologies are making genuine progress towards a more sustainable world.
Konecranes has chosen Cavotec to supply advanced cable reel technologies for two electrically powered Boxhunter Rubber Tyred Gantry (RTG) cranes at an application in Paraguay.
Cavotec’s innovative charging technologies have connected Asia’s first e-ferry to electrical power eliminating emissions and reducing operating costs for its owner.
New cable reel technology that provides electrical power for high reach ship-to-shore (STS) container cranes is boosting green efficiency.
Shore power systems are helping Canadian ports make substantial reductions in cruise and container ship emissions.
Shore power could reduce CO2 emissions by as much as 12.5 million tonnes at ports in Norway every year.
