Cavotec wins orders worth EUR 5M to equip container ships with shore power

Cavotec has won a series of orders in the second quarter with a total value of EUR 5M to equip some of the largest newbuild container ships with ShorePower systems to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. 

This EUR 5M is in addition to EUR 3M in orders already secured in the first quarter.

Cavotec will supply PowerAMPReels for MSC, Samsung Heavy Industries, and a number of other customers. The majority of the systems will be fitted to newbuild container ships with a capacity of 24,000 TEU. The PowerAMPReels systems also include weather-proof enclosures. On each vessel, one ShorePower system will be installed on the port side and one on the starboard side to enable fast and safe connection to shoreside electricity in every port where available.

“We’re proud to support the world’s major container shipping lines in their journey towards sustainable operations. As the leading supplier of shore power systems, Cavotec is trusted to provide worldwide connection compatibility for vessels using shoreside power supply,” said Mikael Norin, Cavotec CEO.
