Perth engineering small to medium enterprise (SME) OneTide, develop autonomous, renewable energy solutions for rapid deployment. Ventia engaged OneTide to investigate safer, more efficient management of shore power operations for out client. Vessels must connect to shore power using high-energy cabling after coming alongside. Cables were lifted by ~40 employees, creating manual handling risk and delaying shore leave by one – two hours. Cables were not housed according to the manufacturer’s recommendations, causing early degradation. The innovative Shore Power Cable Spool solution requires only two people, removes manual handling and ensures cables are maintained in optimal conditions for maximum service life.
