High voltage connections

Hafnarfjord Harbor has two high voltage connections, one in Hvaleyri Quay and the other in South Quay. The facilities for voltage and frequency are in specific movable containers, two 10 feet and one 20 feet. In order to transfer electricity on board, Zinus type electrical cable reels are used, with a transfer capacity of 350 ampers on each electrical cable.

The technology behind these powerful On-Shore Power Supplies consists in a High Voltage Connector at the side of the ship, connected to a transformer, which regulates the voltage into 400, 440, or 690 Volts, and frequency into 50 or 60 Hertz.

All the connections are produced in accordance with the international standard ICE 80005-3 LVSC.
