ABB and Cavotec team up on shore-to-ship power solutions

Technology company ABB and engineering group Cavotec have signed a memorandum of understanding to jointly offer complete shore-to-ship power solutions globally.

Shore-to-ship solutions 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. The technology ensures a seamless switch from onboard generation to shore power supply, without disruption of services including lighting, heating and refrigeration.

The companies will combine their expertise and resources to supply customised solutions to global ports markets, as well as full life cycle services and support. ABB’s 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 its Alternative Marine Power (AMP) portfolio, including shore connection boxes and cable management systems.

“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. “This strategic cooperation with Cavotec allows us to combine our complementary capabilities and bring optimised solutions to our customers.”
