Cavotec - Innovative Port Technologies

Alternative Maritime Power (Shore Power/Cold Ironing)

Cavotec has developed its shore power systems – Alternative Maritime Power (AMP) – since the 1980s (also know as cold ironing). Cavotec’s AMP units consist primarily of cable management systems and connectors installed in or on the quayside, or on board ship, that connect vessels to grid-generated electricity.
There are currently more than 500 AMP units installed, or currently being installed on ships, while ports across North America, Europe and the Far East also use the technology.
The majority of Cavotec’s AMP systems are installed at container, bulk and tanker handling applications, and cruise ship and passenger ferry berths.
