Green mobility, Success stories
Ormazabal, following on from its first connection point in 2014, has successfully implemented a second connection point to the shore power system for boats over 100 m long. Connection is made in medium voltage (6.6 kV), while the utility company’s distribution network is 25 kV. The challenge is to adapt the two systems to meet current technical and safety standards.
Solution based on reliable standard components combined with the value of customisation in line with customer requirements
Seaports are a clear target for policies aimed at decarbonisation and improved sustainability of facilities. In this case we have taken the opportunity to dispense with the auxiliary engines while the boats are docked, thus avoiding the emission of thousands of tons of polluting gases and particles, as well as noise and vibrations.
Achieving this requires the combination of a range of electrical, power, control and protection components, in accordance with stringent Standard IEEE/IEC 80005 and other international or local requirements.
All these components (switchgear, transformer, protection and control systems, and sensors) are fully integrated in a single enclosure on shore (based on a 40′ ISO container), and monitored from on board through state-of-the-art digital communications and control systems.
