Shore-Port-to-Ship Power Conversion Systems
With today's technology focused on energy conservation and clean air, the maritime community, with federal and state agencies, has been aggressively seeking alterative methods for vessels when they berth at port.  More and more ports are offering vessels the opportunity to plug into the city grid and turn off their engines while at port, which is called "cold ironing." 
The term "cold-ironing" is derived from the metal aboard the ships "going cold" during the shutdown of combustion equipment.

Cruis Ships Require Special Power in Port Dock

How does "Cold Ironing" work?
Normally when a vessel berths at port, it gets its power by running auxiliary diesel engines, which produce CO2 emissions.  By shutting down the vessel's engines and using the power from the port, it can cut CO2 emissions by 29% annually and will financially save up to 26% per call. Shore power or "cold ironing" works by a specially designed transformer located at the dock, which enables ships to turn off their diesel engines.  As a result, shore-based electricity runs all onboard services during the day-long calls.

TEMCo Shore Port to Ship Power Converters

TEMCo Shore-Port-to-Ship Power Converters
One of the problems
the ships have when they dock is that each port might have different frequencies and voltages.  A TEMCo Shore-Port-to-Ship Power Converter is an economical answer to this problem. These converters are used to convert frequency, voltage and phases.  The most common frequencies are 50Hz, 60Hz, or 400Hz. Common voltages are 208, 240, 400 and 460 volts.  TEMCo Shore-Port-to-Ship Power Converters also offer line isolation, harmonic cancellation and power factor correction.


TEMCo Shore Port to Ship Power Converter

A TEMCo Shore-Port-to-Ship Power Converter is a unique frequency converter that performs multiple functions. It provides the possibility to connect to any shore power connection anywhere in the world ranging from 25 kVA to over 400 kVA. Supplying power is only half of what this converter does, it also stabilizes and offers power factor correction.
