Gemmo SpA has been awarded the cold ironing plants for the ports of Naples and Salerno, in RTI with Nidec ASI, for thePort System Authority of the Central Tyrrhenian Sea. The work is financed by funds from the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (NRP).
Electrification of the docks will allow ships moored along the piers to turn off their engines and use electricity supplied directly from the port network. This approach will significantly reduce environmental and noise impacts, contributing to greater sustainability of the port. As a result, it will improve the quality of life in neighboring areas.
Port of Naples
The project involves the construction of a cold ironing plant to serve the Angioino Pier. Cold ironing systems for cruise boats will have supply voltages of 11 kV or 6.6 kV. The electrification of two existing berths and the provision for the third at the Angioino Pier will take place through the provision of three socket points positioned at the midpoint along the same docks. The CEB cabin (Electric Cabin “B”) will house the equipment needed to contribute to the maximum power rating of 45/50MVA to power two ships simultaneously. The system will be supplied via a 20-kV underground cable power line.
Port of Salerno
The project involves the construction of a cold ironing plant to serve the Manfredi Pier dock. The cold ironing systems for cruise boats are provided in alternating current with supply voltages of 11 kV or 6.6 kV and frequency 50 Hz or 60 Hz. Electrification of the existing berth will take place through the provision of one or more socket points positioned at the points of the same dock facing the Zaha Hadid Maritime Station. The CEB cabin will house the necessary equipment to contribute to the maximum power rating of 20 MVA. The system will be supplied via a 20-kV underground cable power line from a CRS receiving and sorting cabin to be built at Trapezio Pier.
