ABB and Cavotec join forces to offer shore-to-ship power solutions

Alliance to provide advanced solutions for supplying electricity to ships when docked.





Updated on 29 Apr 2016 10:17 GMT

ABB and Cavotec have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to jointly offer complete shore-to-ship power solutions globally.

The solutions will allow vessels to plug into onshore power supply and shut down their engines, thus cutting fuel costs and eliminating emissions while berthed in ports. The technology is designed to ensure a seamless switch from on-board generation to shore power supply, without disruption of services including lighting, heating and refrigeration.

ABB and Cavotec are to combine their expertise and resources to supply advanced and highly customized solutions to ports around the world, as well as full lifecycle 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 their 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, a part of the company's Power Grids division.

"This strategic co-operation with Cavotec allows us to combine our complementary capabilities and bring optimized solutions to our customers. It is very much in line with our Next Level strategy to forge alliances and partnerships."

"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," remarked Ottonel Popesco, CEO of Cavotec.
