The supplier of cleantech systems Cavotec has been awarded three orders for its shore power connection systems by the marine equipment manufacturer Samsung Heavy Industries.

The three orders with a total value of US$3.58 million which were booked in the third quarter are for Cavotec’s Alternative Maritime Power (AMP) Reel Shore Power connection systems that will be integrated into new-build container ships for Evergreen, Seaspan and Capital.

“These wins illustrate Cavotec’s vital role in enabling the modernisation and decarbonisation of the global ports and maritime sector,” highlighted Cavotec’s CEO, Mikael Norin.

PowerAMPReels enable vessels to be connected to shoreside electrical supply when in port and for their conventionally-powered engines to be shut off, according to a statement, and this dramatically reduces emissions of harmful nitrogen and sulphur oxides and particulate matter, thereby improving air quality and health outcomes in port areas and surrounding communities.
