UPS system aids Chinese port’s bid to tackle pollution

February 6, 2018

A shore-based power supply system combined with backup UPS capabilities is being deployed at the busy Chinese port of Xiuyu to help reduce pollution from visiting vessels.


China-based Sicon said its system will offer a reliable source of onshore power to berthed ships— reducing the need to run on board diesel generators for air-conditioning and other equipment.


Sicon said its containerised package includes a modular 800kVA UPS system with 50kVA power module along with power distribution equipment and transformers.


The move provides “an energy-saving and emission-reduction solution” to tackling problems associated with ships running their own individual power systems— such as the generation of “large amounts of CO2, NOX and dangerous fine particulate matter”, Sicon said.
