Container vessels are becoming larger and larger, shipping alliances change and therefore the vessels that moor at ports. The handling capacity at the quayside is the key criteria for the profitability of the container terminal. Flexible planning of the mooring positions for the daily changing vessel types is essential.
The cable management system on board the vessel usually is located at different positions with a deployment length from 115-180 ft. To connect the vessel to shore power they have to be berthed at the exact connection position. Stationary SPOs therefore restrict the berthing areas.
