Zero-emissions at shore

Improve the environmental footprint and local emissions by installing low voltage shore connection on your vessel. International standards make shore power available worldwide.

Greater steps must be taken to make shipping cleaner and to meet the increasingly stringent guidelines for ports and inland waterways.

Electrification in terms of clean power is highlighted in almost every industry today and Ulstein proudly takes part in this by designing equipment, systems and vessels for future proofing.

For 12 per cent of her time, the vessel is at port, running on self-supplied power

In offshore supply duties, the vessels regularly enter ports for unloading and loading of goods, equipment, tools and personnel. Often, the timeframe is limited, and many things are happening at the same time. The vessel's power factory is kept running to have available power for cranes, pumps and hotel loads.
An estimate of 12 per cent of the total operation, the vessel is at port running on self-supplied power. In other words, approx. 1,000 running hours per year.

We offer a shore power solution

Ulstein's shore power solution with “plug and play” functionality and seamless synchronisation makes connection-to-shore grid efficient and easy. Further, the shore power solution is scalable in terms of power ratings, making it easy to adapt to the vessel's power demands.

SHORE POWER BENEFITS

  • Reducing running hours
  • Less wear and tear on the machinery
  • Zero emissions at port
  • Increasing comfort for crew, reduced noise
  • Reduced environmental impact

Ulstein's shore power system has been designed according to the international standard IEC/PAC 80005-3, with an easy integration to the vessel's power plant and automation system.
