Shore to ship power partnership
Cavotec and ABB have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to jointly offer complete shore-to-ship power solutions globally.
These power solutions will allow vessels to plug into onshore power supply and shut down their engines, eliminating noxious emissions, noise and vibrations while berthed in ports that are often located in city surrounds.
“Shore-to-ship power is a sustainable solution to reduce local emissions and enable green port operations, and another example of how ABB technologies are fostering a better world,” said Oleg Aleinikov, managing director of ABB’s Grid Integration business.
Ottonel Popesco, CEO of Cavotec, added: “The synergies between ABB and Cavotec provide the basis to expand our leading position into the Alternative Marine Power market. Cavotec’s portfolio ideally complements ABB’s offering in shore-to-ship power solutions. This alliance will reinforce our market leadership as the world’s best Shore Connection Interface System supplier.”
The new partnership will see the two firms combining their expertise and resources to supply advanced and highly customised solutions to global ports markets, as well as full lifecycle services and support.
ABB’s innovative shore-to-ship power systems include technologies for port electrification, frequency conversion systems, power transformers, control and protection equipment, as well as consulting services.
Cavotec contributes interface equipment from their leading Alternative Marine Power (AMP) portfolio, including shore connection boxes and cable management systems.
ABB is a leading global technology company in power and automation that enables utility, industry, and transport and infrastructure customers to improve their performance while lowering environmental impact.
Cavotec is a global engineering group that enables industries to improve productivity, safety and sustainability by delivering power transmission, distribution and control technologies.
