SPOs (shore power outlet) used to be installed as fixed outlets into the quay, which are limiting the connection range. The e-chain® reel system is a mobile shore power connection system that enables ports to gain the necessary flexibility for different vessel types and sizes.
Motorised e-chain® reel that spools a special igus® energy chain
Special energy chain with roller inserts, attached to the chain becomes the mobile SPO
The e-chain® with mobile SPO can be deployed with existing port equipment or a winch
The e-chain® protects and manage the cable not to lie exposed on the terminal
The system is fully integrated into the overall safety procedure
Can be connected to any stationary SPO
With hoist for handling heavy cables
Extended length of 50-60 m
Install mobile SPOs instead of stationary SPOs directly
Also possible in very constricted installation spaces
Extended length of 75-100 m
Different vessel types can be connected at any time
Expensive medium-voltage cables are protected against abrasion and other outside influences
Easy handling and increased occupational safety: The mobile SPO is driven to the connection point, heavy
Cables do not have to be laboriously dragged to the stationary SPO on the quay
Increased safety, longer service life and lower costs
Develop your terminal for the future. Profit from igus® long standing experience in the maritime sector.
