Low Power Fleets

Port electrification brings lots of smaller electric machines to the ports. Effectively managing and operating extensive electric fleets at the port poses a notable challenge. While the charging power needs of these machines are lower, the CCS2 standard proves ideal for meeting these charging requirements. The primary obstacle lies in optimizing the fleet charging process for efficiency. Additionally, minimizing downtime of the machine during charging is imperative to maximize the Total Cost of Ownership (TOC).

  • Boost Machine Uptime: Fleet control of the machines is crucial. The solution it’s not just about the hardware; you need powerful software solutions too. Charge your machines according to their operation schedules, ensuring optimal performance and minimal downtime.
  • Grid friendly solution: Dynamic power sharing optimizes the grid connection and dynamically smart charges the machines according the charging requirement.
  • Space-Efficient Charging: With limited parking space at ports, the footprint of chargers can impact the number of berths available. Small footprint ensures space-efficient charging, avoiding any reduction in berths.

High Power Fleets

Investing in large port machines is a crucial step in any electrification project. These robust machines necessitate advanced power charging solutions to function at their peak efficiency. Charging is facilitated through standardized solutions, which can either be CCS or MCS, and the connection can be established manually or automatically. Typically, the charging power demands of these machines are elevated, leaving no room for any power de-ratings.

  • Maximize Machine downtime: Utilizing high-power charging ensures that machines remain operational at the field with highest efficiency.
  • Seamless Integration: If the charging happens during operations, the integration of automatic connection devices is required to maximize the operation schedule.
  • Space Optimization: With limited parking space at ports, the footprint of chargers can impact the number of berths available. Small footprint ensures space-efficient charging, avoiding any reduction in berths.

Truck Charging at Ports

In 2030, about 500,000 electric trucks are expected to be on the road in the
EU. Ports will play a crucial role in this shift by becoming central hubs for
charging these trucks. We’re talking mega-power on-the-go chargers and
sleek overnight solutions for truck parks. This opportunity gives also a
opportunity for Port operators and authorities, unlocking fresh opportunities
for additional revenue and supporting the port electrification.

At Kempower, we’re at the forefront of this revolution, offering a diverse
range of solutions tailored to meet every need:

  • MCS Solutions: Our cutting-edge MCS solutions are ready to charge
    trucks efficiently while they wait, ensuring a seamless workflow and
    minimal downtime.
  • Depot Charging Excellence: Kempower provides perfect charging
    solutions for truck parks, whether it’s a quick pit stop or an overnight
  • Power Management: Take command with Kempower ChargEye,
    enabling you to control and optimize power usage across entire ports.
    It’s the key to maximizing efficiency and minimizing costs.
