Nidec ASI, part of the energy and infrastructure division of the Nidec Group, has won a contract worth €2.5 million for implementing ship-to-shore technology at the Port of Sète in France.
The port will house three turnkey power supply systems, which will be developed to power three different quays. The systems will consist of converters and transformers developed in Nidec’s Milan and Montebello plants and will allow the voltage and frequency of electricity supply network to be adapted to what is required by docked ships.
The French plants of the Roche La Molière and Istres Group will act as system integrators, managing all engineering and project management activities, as well as the commissioning, monitoring, control and maintenance of the planet.
“We were among the first players to promote the electrification of port quays, a decisive solution for reducing the environmental impact of port activities, for greater safety and for energy savings, and today we are the point of reference for this type of projects,” said Dominique Llonch, CEO of Nidec ASI and chairman of Nidec Industrial Solutions “This new order confirms the competitiveness of our plug and play solutions, which guarantee high performance at the best price.”
Delivery of the converters is scheduled for July 2023 and commissioning of the systems by November 2023.
