Clean power for the largest port in the world

487 views

Published on

Clean AC power is essential for the reliable and efficient operation of electrical equipment. The Port of Shanghai, the busiest port in the world in terms of cargo throughput, uses a movable 2000 kVA shore power supply system with Vacon AC drives to supply electricity from the national grid to the ships in dock. This miniature electricity substation is green not only in colour but also in terms of the benefits it brings: low exhaust emissions, costs and noise.
