Siemens to build a shore power plant for ships in Cuxhaven

Siemens has received an order from the regional grid operator EWE Netz GmbH to supply the key components of a Siharbor shore power supply system in Cuxhaven.

The order includes the complete transformer station as well as the cable feed system for ro-ro (roll-on/roll-off) ships at the Cuxhaven shore power plant, the manufacturer states in the press release.

With a power output of 630 kW, the plant will supply these ships with electricity during their lay time.

The Siharbor system is expected to go into operation by April 2018.
