Engineering giant, Cavotec, and energy technology company, ABB, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to jointly offer worldwide shore-to-ship power solutions.

Cavotec and ABB will combine resources to supply tailored solutions to global ports markets, as well as full lifecycle services and support.

Oleg Aleinikov, managing director of ABB’s grid integration business, said: “Shore-to-ship power is a sustainable solution to reduce local emissions and enable green port operations, and another example of how ABB technologies are fostering a better world.”

“This strategic co-operation with Cavotec allows us to combine our complementary capabilities and bring optimised solutions to our customers. It is very much in line with our Next Level strategy to forge alliances and partnerships,” he added.

“The synergies between ABB and Cavotec provide the basis to expand our leading position into the Alternative Marine Power market. Cavotec’s portfolio ideally complements ABB’s offering in shore-to-ship power solutions,” said Ottonel Popesco, chief executive of Cavotec.

"This alliance will reinforce our market leadership as the world’s best Shore Connection Interface System supplier,” he added.

ABB’s shore-to-ship power systems include technologies for port electrification, frequency conversion systems, power transformers, control and protection equipment, as well as consulting services. Cavotec contributes interface equipment from their Alternative Marine Power (AMP) portfolio including shore connection boxes and cable management systems.
