igus® shore power connections for container terminals and vessels

Container terminals and vessels  
Container terminals

Container vessels are becoming larger and larger. At the same time, shipping alliances change and therefore the vessels that dock also change.
The handling capacity at the quayside is one of the key criteria for the profitability of the container terminal. Flexible planning of the docking positions for the daily changing vessels is essential.
The cable management system on board the vessel can by located in various places and the maximum cable length is limted (35-55 m).While, stationary shore power connections on the quay restrict the connection area. Find out how igus® mobile SPO technology can transform container terminals, making shore power connections more flexible, and more profitable.

The IEC 80005-1 standard defines that the cable management system is located on board the vessel. This cable management system either is located on board as a semi-mobile system in a 40‘ HC container at a container space near the aft of the vessel or as a permanently installed system usually located more midships close to the engine room.

This cable management system is exposed to harsh weather conditions, salt water and vibrations. Find out how you can improve the function of the cable management system and reduce maintenance and improve durability with the igus® e-spool®.
