The publication presents a professional feasibility study of the proposed technical solutions for the on-shore electrical infrastructure to supply ships with the electrical power during their staying at ports. The vessels utilize their diesel engines in order to produce the electricity they require for the loading/discharging activities, hoteling and other needs while in ports.
Main shipboard engines are commonly switched off straight after the vessel gets berthed. Nowadays, the auxiliary engines installed on board run on the cheap low quality fuel, and their operation results in the negative impact on the environment. There are several marine ports applying the shore-side electrical power supply in the port infrastructure and the environment of those parts have significantly improved during past years.
The other ports have subsequently started investigation in this field analyzing the possibilities of arranging the shore-side supply. When preparing a technical design, the first thing to be investigated is the shipboard electrical system. The study contained in this report has shows how the electrical power needs vary depending on the type of ship, ranging from one to eleven megawatts. The ports shall be duly aware of the ship power needs, system voltage and frequency in order to properly design the supply facility...
