Cubic Modulsystemer

Current for Norwegian cruise ships

PowerCon in Hadsund, one of our loyal Danish CUBIC Partners, has specialised in producing land-based current facilities that connect ships in harbours to the local electricity network. CUBIC’s Modular System is used for all switchboards as well as the individual inverter modules. These facilities enable the ships to function with the engines turned off to provide an obvious improvement of the environment in and around the harbour, as the noise and vibration level is reduced.

At the end of 2018 PowerCon delivered Europe’s largest current facilities to Kristiansand Harbour in Norway. This harbour has a leading position when it comes to green transition by offering current for ships and rigs. The facilities stand out by supplying the even the largest cruise ships with the correct voltage and frequency as well as sufficient currency to turn the engines off completely. Following the installation in 2018, an integration was made into 8 units 20 feet containers delivering up to 16MVA at 11 kV, and a frequency area from 50 to 60 Hz. The facilities provide 4 x 4000A at 690V.

PowerCon has since landed an order for Baatsfjord Harbour in northern Norway for 3 installations. They are the largest Norwegian land-based current facilities so far, and when they are finished, it will be possible to connect 30-40 ships at the same time.
