Maritime technology company, Trident BMC has introduced a containerised shore connection solution dedicated to ropaxes and containerships.

With a maximum capacity of 7,500 kVA, the C-AMP 7500D transfers power from a land-based grid. Receiving power from external energy source allows vessels to shut down their auxiliary engines and eliminate emissions during port stays.

All of the key components are housed inside a 40 ft container, including the cable reels, high voltage switchboard, control and monitoring cabinets and HVAC units.

• Adopting shoreside electricity can reduce SO2, NOx, and PM emissions at berth by up to 100%
• Eliminates noise pollution
• Fuel savings at port
• Improving Clean Shipping Index
• Additional benefits offered by port authorities, which may include reduced port tariffs
• Decreasing costs of main engine maintenance.

Its design enables the C-AMP 7500D to be used on both the port- and starboard sides. The container can be moved and stored elsewhere during a voyage.

It comes equipped with two cable reels, one for shore connection with automatic tension control and the other to connect to the ship’s electrical system.

Key Trident BMC services and activities include:
• Survey & feasibility study
• Engineering & design
• Procurement & manufacturing
• Class approval
• Main switchboard modifications
• Testing and commissioning
• Training.
