Urgent need of shore power for Hurtigruten in Molde

“A quick clarification was necessary and PSW Power & Automation AS fulfilled our request”, says Olav Akselvoll, Port director of Molde and Romsdal Harbor. ” Hurtigruten requested a shore power solution due to environmental and economic reasons. Good cooperation between PSW, local power company, equipment supplier in Åndalsnes and the harbor was crucial for a successful project.”

Molde and Romsdal Harbor IKS and Hurtigruten were in the urgent need of shorepower for three ships which are out of operation due to Covid-19. The harbor asked for a 1800kW solution and delivery within two weeks. PSW Power & Automation built a shore power container including transformers and switchboards with connection for three ships within the deadline.

PSW Power & Automation has a comprehensive shore power rental pool of 16MVA for both national and international rental.
