igus® mobile shore power outlet systems (iMSPO) with long travel cable carriers

How can we meet the challenges of providing shore power connections for all vessels today and tomorrow? Changes in shipping alliances, increasing ship sizes and limitations on construction in existing terminals provide challenges that can not be solved with stationary shore power outlets.


  • Installation of iMSPO on the quay wall above the fendering system
  • With igus roller e-chains for longer travels and heavy cable fill packages to cover an entire berth
  • iMSPO is self-propelled and can be positioned anywhere along the berth
  • Control of all operations with a pendant
  • Designed according to IEC 80005-1, Annex D - 6.6kV, 7.5MVA
  • Meets EU Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC
  • Corrosion protection system according to C5-M
  • IP65 rating for electrical components
