Professor Adam Weintrit, Chairman of the TransNav Conference, Rector of Gdynia Maritime University and Editor-in-Chief of TransNav Journal has informed us of the above event.
The Conference is jointly organized by the Faculty of Navigation of the Gdynia Maritime University and The Nautical Institute.
Sanmar Shipyards has joined forces with IGUS, the world’s largest energy chain systems manufacturer, to develop and build a new compact ‘electric bunkering’ system that can supply various vessel types with onshore power.
By joining forces and expertise, the two companies have designed and built a simple to operate compact quayside Shore Power Dispenser System, which can be operated by just one crew member.
The modular design allows an extension of the dispenser system to provide higher charging power capacities easily. Each cable dispenser module can handle 500A current capacity (up to 1000V AC).
