Cavotec's cleantech systems are enabling the modernization and decarbonization of the global ports and shipping sector.

Cavotec has won a series of orders in the second quarter with a total value of EUR 5M to equip the world’s largest new-build container ships with ShorePower systems. This is in addition to EUR 3M in orders already secured in the first quarter. The powerful cleantech technologies enable dramatic pollution reductions and are the latest example of how Cavotec is enabling the modernization and decarbonization of the global ports and shipping sector.

“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,” says Mikael Norin, Cavotec CEO.

The majority of orders are for new-build container vessels for international shipping line MSC and for Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI), one of the world’s largest ship builders. With these orders, MSC and SHI are demonstrating their trust in Cavotec’s innovative ShorePower systems, Cavotec’s global footprint, and our capacity to provide comprehensive local support throughout design, installation, and commissioning.

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.
