Cavotec supports greener Chinese cruise
Cavotec shore power technologies are playing a key role in delivering substantial sustainability savings to ports in China.
The development of cruise berths at Chinese ports continues at a rapid pace following the introduction of regulations to support the adoption of shore power to reduce emissions.
Cavotec AMPMobile has been installed at the Taiziwan cruise terminal at the Port of Shenzhen, southern China. The unit’s batteries are charged while it connects vessels to the grid. This means that no additional vehicles are required to move it around the quay, further reducing environmental impact.
Two other cruise terminals, Wusong in Shanghai and Qingdao in Shangdong, will soon be equipped with similar systems, helping to set the standard for shore power interfaces for cruise terminals in China.
Cavotec pioneered shore power in the 1980s with AMPMobile first entering service at the Port of Los Angeles in 2011, with six further units in service in Californian, Chinese and European ports. AMPMobile is now also used to power cruise vessels in Canada.
As a leading supplier of innovative shore power cable management systems to ferry, cruise, and container handling applications, Cavotec also develops solutions that connect and charge electric and hybrid vessels.
Several such systems have entered service in Europe in recent years, with the first coming on line in Asia at the end of 2017, where a Cavotec AMPShore Reel charges Asia’s first e-ferry, the Cijian Island passenger ferry.
