Realization of shore power in the Nieuwe Haven in Arnhem, Netherlands

This August, WVnld started building the shore power boxes in Arnhem, NL.

These boxes are made by a local welding company. Subsequently, the various electrical components were installed by a local electrical company, so that the boxes can be connected to the electricity grid and ships can connect to the boxes.

Additionally, electronics and software are built in to monitor the electricity consumption of the ships.

The shape of the shore power boxes is tailored to the locations where these cabinets are placed, under the existing stairs at the quay wall.


(Below) Choosing the locations of the boxes: The locations for the shore power boxes have been chosen so that the electricity is available for the connection of three lengths of river cruise vessels of 135m.

The distance between the cabinets is approximately 150 m
