More and more ports are confronted with an increased public awareness for environmental issues.
Stricter guidelines forces ports to implement more environmentally friendly technologies. igus® energy supply system for the
Shore power supply is the solution to reduce air pollution, noise and vibrations of vessels while at berth.
An international standard ensures compatibility of shore power connection for different types of vessels at any port in the world.
IEC 80005-1 defines the standard for medium voltage connections and IEC 80005-3 for low voltage connections.
"When you've been to one port, you've been to one port." That is a saying exemplifying the understanding among the maritime community that every port is inherently unique. Different tides, terminal design and port equipment vary from port to port from terminal to terminal and ship to ship. Every day the ports handle different ships of different sizes, with different loading, moored at different positions with different shore power connection requirements. Reduced planning efforts and efficient handling of fright is mandatory for the success of a port. Shore power connections have to be compliant with this highly dynamic port environment. The operation of the port must not be restricted
Requirements for shore power connections:
Flexible and mobile
Space-saving even in difficult installation spaces
Long lasting and resistant to outside influences
