Shore-to-ship power solutions
Shore-to-ship power solutions improve air quality and reduce noise in ports
ABB is one of the major suppliers for vessels and ports worldwide. Our products and solutions cover a wide range of applications, from electrification and propulsion of vessels to complete electrification of ports and automation of container terminals. ABB products and solutions continuously help ports and shipowners to reduce environmental impact while increasing productivity.
There is increasing pressure on shipping operators and port authorities worldwide to improve air quality in ports, especially as they are often located in densely populated cities. A key benefit of using shore-to-ship power solutions is the elimination of greenhouse gas emissions such as nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulphur oxides (SOx) and particulate matter (PM). Other benefits include reduced noise and vibrations in port and on the ship and the possibility to perform maintenance on onboard diesel engines while at berth.
