Cavotec inks $5 million shore power order

Cavotec has signed an order for shore power with a global shipping company, valued at about $5 million.

The order includes a substantial number of PowerFit shore power units, enabling vessels to connect to shore power with ease while docked. Deliveries are scheduled for later this year.

Cavotec’s PowerFit units reportedly offer complete containerised solutions for high-voltage vessel connections.

By facilitating shore power connections, these systems significantly reduce air and noise pollution in ports, according to Cavotec.

”This partnership with a global shipping company is yet another confirmation of the strength of our offering,” said Patrick Mares, President of Ports & Maritime Division at Cavotec.

“Our innovative shore power systems contribute to the decarbonisation of ports worldwide as well as quieter port environments.”

Last September, the Port of Aberdeen received funding from the UK government for a multi-million-pound project to design and deliver the first large-scale landside and vessel-side shore power system in Scotland.

More recently, the Port Authority of Valencia (PAV) awarded construction company SAMPOL Ingeniería y Obras S.A. the contract for the drafting and subsequent execution of the Onshore Power Supply (OPS) project.
