Shore connection pre-designed, ready-to-use systems to provide shoreside grid power to ships at berth
- The ShoreBoX is a pre-designed shore-to-ship power connection solution that consists of a range of standard components organised in different functional modules fully packaged in a single metal enclosure.
- It has been designed with the utmost concern for space and cost optimisation.
- All ShoreBoX modules include tested, validated, and documented architectures, guaranteeing system reliability.
- This solution can be implemented and operated without disturbing port activities. The ShoreBoX solution is adaptable to the different power needs and electrical frequency of the ships and to a variety of port infrastructures.
The ShoreBoX solution is scalable and movable, hence adaptable to changes in berth profile or the electrical power needed by the ships.
It includes an energy management and control system enabling ports to optimise their electricity consumption and thereby reduce operational costs. The system tracks and reports all data in real time, giving ports visibility of energy-source selection, forecasts, simulation, metering and billing. The system also supplies data on the port environmental indicators to make a shore connection investment as green and efficient as possible.
- The ShoreBoX is supported by a comprehensive services offer to support ports throughout the entire project, including design, execution and post-sales services. These services are implemented by dedicated trained local teams.
