Mammoet transports world’s largest lock doors around the globe
When the three largest lock doors in the world were constructed for fitting at the new sea lock in IJmuiden, Mammoet devised a series of unique solutions.
Last month in November the Port of Amsterdam replaced the shore power points on the inland shipping jetty in the Nieuwe Houthaven with ‘smart’ shore power points. A real milestone, because now all the shore power points are smart in the port of Amsterdam!
What are the advantages of these smart shore power points? They are ergonomically designed, so the plugs are very easy to connect and Port of Amsterdam can reset the power points remotely in case of a malfunction.
The port autority has also reinforced the embankment of the breakwater in the Houthaven. Therefore it is no longer obligatory to moor ‘bow to front’. Vessels can also moor with the stern near the shore power point. Because of this, connecting the ship to shore power is even easier.
As a result of placement of the smart shore power points throughout the port, there will be a generator ban at the waiting berths in the Houthaven, Nieuwe Houthaven and Minervahaven as of mid-January 2023. Once the generator ban is in effect, it will be indicated on the signs throughout the port.
