Distributed power for sea ports


A modern port integrates a sophisticated array of services, including materials handling and storage, logistics management, transport and distribution, as well as ship-related operations.

However, with stringent environmental regulations now coming into force to reduce pollution and noise, passenger cruise terminals and container ports are obliged to reconfigure the electrical systems behind these services. This means switching their electrical connections over from diesel power plants onboard ships to shore-based electrical clean power.

As a promoter of clean and green technology, Alstom Grid is helping ports to respond to this challenge by developing a complete HV shore connection system based on power electronics.

For bulk material seaports, our offer includes the design, engineering, manufacturing, testing, installation and maintenance of the whole electrical system for conveyer systems, jetties, transfer towers, mobile machines and stockyards
