Electrical infrastructure is the backbone of a modern container terminal. Given the increasing number of electrically powered equipment, reefer racks and other electrical consumers at a container handling facility, designing and building such infrastructure is a demanding task. Truly optimized electrical infrastructure requires deep knowledge about power distribution from system design to project execution. Such infrastructure plays an important role in successful terminal operation over time, and helps to achieve the set targets.

Using electrically powered equipment significantly reduces emissions and noise from a terminal, which improves the working environment for the people working in the terminal, and reduces the terminal’s impact on the surrounding community. Combined with shore-to-ship power connection the emissions of terminal operations can be reduced even further.
