Shore power supply system
ABB has been awarded a contract to install a new shore power supply system at Incheon Port in South Korea. The new system will help reduce emissions, noise and vibrations in passenger ship berths.

It will also include a transformer and a neutral grounding registor unit.
As the public’s awareness of environmental issues grows, more ports are implementing environmentally friendly technologies. Shore power supply systems are one of the most common ways to reduce noise, vibration and air pollution. They are standardized to meet specific standards that ensure compatibility with existing shore power connections. The IEC 80005-1 and 80005-3 standards define the compatibility between shore power connections.
