The term iMSPO stands for igus® Mobile Shore Power Outlet and is a self-propelled socket for shore power connection of container ships. The system is positioned at the berth and installed on the quay above the fender system. You will receive a ready-to-connect and final-tested readychain® assembly for shore power connection of ships.
The system complies with the following standards and guidelines:
The combination of igus roller energy chain and special chainflex medium-voltage cables enables the system to travel on port sections with up to 400 metres length. Due to the small bend radii of the chainflex medium-voltage cables, the system can be compactly designed and installed in a space-saving way.
Therefore, shore power is available over the entire berth. Regardless of the different ship sizes, the connection is always positioned where it is needed, based on the berthing position of the ship. The iMSPO is conveniently operated with a remote control.
The development of the igus shore power systems continuously incorporates the experience gained from successfully completed projects. The close cooperation with our customers, enables us to map the conditions and requirements on the igus test field as realistically as possible. Every module and system undergoes intensive tests at the igus test facility for function and service life.
And this is how it works: animation of the iMSPO at the harbour

The heart of the MULTISPRINT multi-spindle lathe is the spindle drum with six spindles for simultaneous machining of several workpieces. The drum moves the workpieces to the tools quickly and very precisely. For spindles to return to the starting position after machining has been completed in the six stations, the drum has to turn 300 degrees in reverse. The biggest challenge: a safe energy supply system for all six spindles.
In its robotic machining centres, Taiwanese tool manufacturer Hartford uses fully harnessed energy chain systems from igus.
This makes it possible to cut out many work steps and thus reduce the assembly time from several weeks to a mere half a day. At the same time, customers can always depend on receiving a safe and reliable solution from a single source when they order readychain systems from igus.
Modular automatic medication picking systems are used for the fast storage and retrieval of medicines in chemists, hospitals or care homes and can be adapted to almost all spatial conditions on site. They must be compact and modular in order to enable problem-free extension and a reliable supply.
The readychain systems can be ideally adapted to circumstances and spatial conditions.
The Mongstad offshore base is one of the most frequently used bases in Norway. The ships change twice a day in order to be loaded with equipment for the offshore platforms in the North Sea. The base operates around the clock.
Therefore, a reliable, robust and flexible system for supplying shore power from igus is used. A harnessed e-spool is integrated in a three-metre long container that can be handled by forklifts to position the system along the various berths.
Where the automation of machines and industrial plant is concerned, there is a whole series of different reasons to decide in favour of pre-assembled energy supply systems.
Manufacturing costs decrease, sources of errors are practically excluded. Less project planning work is needed whereas reliability increases. Possible areas of use are in assembly/installation engineering and handling technology, in conveyor technology or in mechanical engineering.
Ready to install instead of separate parts - No company has to deal with installing energy chains and cables for their machines any more. With our readychain system, we provide individual, harnessed energy supply systems, which can be easily installed on site.
From more than 15,000 tests performed per year, we have created what is probably the world's largest test database. This database gives us the ability to always select the right product for your specific application. Individual tests for your industry are also possible.
Do you need a fully harnessed energy supply system?
From the procurement of all necessary components to the assembly of the ready-to-install system, we take care of the entire procurement logistics. Save up to 95% harnessing time this way!
