igus® e-chain® dispenser, the modular cable management system for shore power connections at defined mooring positions

safe ... smart ... modular ...

The igus® e-chain® dispenser connects different vessels such as ferries, RoRo/RoPax ships and offshore vessels to shore power. The pivoting arm bridges the distance to the vessel so that the connectors can be reached and plugged conveniently. When in operation, the e-chain® loop compensates the movements caused by the tide, load, wind and waves.

Combination of up to five e-chain® magazines to one e-chain® dispenser


Safe cable guidance with the triflex® e-chain® for three-dimensional movements

Single core cables available from stock instead of expensive multi core cables

Smaller outer diameter of the single cores results in small bend radii and a more compact system

The e-chain® ensures correct bending radius, while providing tension relief and protecting the cables against damages

Configurable with different cables, depending on power demand and voltage category

Completely enclosed, optimum protection against wind and weather

Less wear, greater operational reliability and safety, longer service life

Develop your terminal for the future. Profit from igus® long standing experience in the maritime sector.
