ABB Enables Emissions-Free Port Stay In Marseille For Corsica Linea Ferries

By | 2019 Newsletter week 38 | No Comments

The ships of Corsica Linea will cut emissions and noise pollution while berthed in the port of Marseille, in France.

The three ferries PAGLIA ORBA, JEAN NICOLI and PASCAL PAOLI are being modified to use ABB’s power compensation solution Dynacomp that allows electricity from the local grid in Marseille to be stepped down to 11 KV in order to take care of ship power needs when moored.

They “will be emissions-free when berthed in Marseille” said Ludovic Amouroux, Project Manager at Corsica Linea. “We estimate we will use between 7MWh and 11 MWh of zero-emission power per call, depending on the vessel”.

The project covers the supply and shipboard installation of electrical, mechanical and automation systems to enable shore power connection. On the shore side, ABB will deliver a custom-designed cable management system on the quay at Marseille.

The installation of ABB’s shore connection technology on one of the ferries, PAGLIA ORBA, is already underway, while the two remaining vessels will be connected to shore power in 2020.
