ABB’s innovative shore power solution for ships in Rotterdam
Stena Line Ro-Ro terminal in Hoek van Holland, Rotterdam has been equipped with ABB’s shore power solution since 2012. It allows the berthed vessels to connect to port’s electricity grid and switch off their engines and thus eliminate emissions, noise and vibrations. The connection was recently upgraded with wireless communication system that facilitates communication between approaching ships and port’s electrical substation, making the connection process even faster and safer.
