ABB has been awarded a contract by the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority to provide a technology solution that will enable power to be supplied from shore to the Global Container Terminal (GCT) Deltaport. Canada’s largest container port, located in Delta, British Columbia, is designed to handle trans-Pacific container vessels. The Deltaport terminal is spread over a one square kilometer area, with three berths across 1100 m.
The shore to ship solution will enable ships to connect to the electrical grid of Canadian utility, BC Hydro, instead of using diesel generators. The company will provide the design, engineering and supply of key technologies like the high voltage shore connection system, with protection, control and communication capabilities. The ability to shut down ship engines at the port will curtail polluting substances such as nitrogen and sulfur oxides (NOx and SOx), and will also mitigate noise and vibration levels, to support the terminal’s sustainability goals.
