The new High Voltage Shore Connection (HVSC), recently installed in the Port of Ystad, Sweden, has rendered a significant interest in shipping circles over the last couple of months.

Recently, over 70 participants from all Nordic countries and the Baltic States gathered for a special seminar featuring technical discussions and live inspection of the newly opened double frequency HVSC.

Our solution with two independently operating frequencies for up to four ships simultaneously is in the absolute forefront and has created a stir in the industry, said Björn Boström, managing director of Port of Ystad.

Along with inspecting the live HVSC being connected to Unity Lines MF Skania, the seminar focused on explaining and sharing solutions ranging from meeting the different demands of individual ships to port construction while maintaining a 24/7 service.

The secret is, of course, cooperation, cooperation and even more cooperation, said Ingemar Gustafsson of Processkontroll Elektriska AB, who was in overall charge of the joint venture consisting of five companies.

Unity Lines’ MS Skania was first to be connected, closely followed by MS Wawel of Polferries. The remaining six ships daily calling into Port of Ystad will connect later this fall or early 2014.

The new HVSC installation contributes to a healthier environment both for crew as well as for port staff, not to mention the improvement of the overall air quality for the citizens of the municipality of Ystad.
