Scana subsidiary, PSW Power & Automation, has signed another contract for a shore power solution in Iceland.

Faxagardur port area in Reykjavik is to fit a shore power solution and has chosen PSW as its partner for the project.

This solution includes a complete converter system, cable management system and on-site installation. The system will enable fossil-free berthing at two locations.

Faxagardur will provide smaller cruise ships, typically explorer cruise ships and naval vessels with shore power.

The system is to be delivered by the end of the fourth quarter of this year.

“This is the second shore power solution PSW Power & Automation delivers to Iceland. The contract is strategically important, increases the company`s position in the European market, and underpins Scana’s overall ambition of accelerating the maritime green energy transition by being a driver in electrification and emission reduction solutions,” Styrk Bekkenes, Scana CEO, explained.
