Cavotec to equip MSC ULCS newbuilds with shorepower systems
Cavotec won a series of orders in Q2 this year with a total value of €5M (US$6M) to equip the world’s largest newbuild container ships with shore power systems. This is in addition to €3M in orders secured in Q1.
The powerful cleantech technologies enable dramatic pollution reductions.
“We’re proud to support the world’s major container shipping lines in their journey towards sustainable operations. As a leading supplier of shore power systems, Cavotec is trusted to provide worldwide connection compatibility for vessels using shoreside power supply,” said Cavotec chief executive Mikael Norin.
Most of the orders are for newbuild container vessels for MSC and for Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI), one of the world’s largest ship builders.
Cavotec will supply PowerAMPReels for MSC, SHI and other customers. The systems will be fitted to newbuild container ships with a capacity of 24,000 TEU. The PowerAMPReels systems also include weather-proof enclosures. On each vessel, one ShorePower system will be installed on the port side and one on the starboard side to enable fast and safe connection to shoreside electricity in every port where available.
Cavotec designs and delivers connection and electrification solutions to enable the decarbonisation of ports and industrial applications worldwide.
