Shore connection system for berthed ships SIHARBOR

Make your port eco-friendly and efficient


Ships account for 90% of the world‘s comercial good transport. The combustion of marine fuels to generate electric power during lay days in port is a major contributor to local air pollution and the associated impacts on human health and the environment. With the SIHARBOR shore connection system, berthed ships can draw the needed energy from onshore and shut down their generators. They meet the strong environmental regulations that are being taken for ports worldwide in the most efficient way.


With SIHARBOR, Siemens offers a standard modular concept featuring its SIPLINK converters for both onshore and onboard. SIHARBOR provides a fast, simple and flexible connection to the ship via a cable management system. It fully complies with the international standards IEC/ISO/IEEE 80005 and IEC 62613-2. The system fulfils the different power requirements of port operators, ship-owners, shipyards and power supply companies. It can be installed at any port and adapted to any berth topology and power need. It can also supply all type of vessels, such as cruise liners or container ships and ferries. Thanks to the modular design of SIPLINK, any solution using the frequency combination of 50 Hz and 60 Hz as well as all voltage levels can be adapted and realized with one SIPLINK system.
