Electrifying Shipping

In collaboration with a group of partners, Cavotec has successfully tested a combined wireless induction charging and automated mooring system with a hybrid passenger ferry off the west coast of Norway. Vacuum-based automated mooring technology allows the ship to dock precisely so that the wireless induction chargers can boost the ship’s batteries in port. This in-port electrification has the potential to reduce the greenhouse emissions of the maritime transport sector, which currently accounts for around 2.5% of global emissions. It will also improve local air quality and the respiratory health of local residents and workers.
