Shore power supplies usually refer to the provision of electric power to a ship at berth or dock. The shore power provision is generally done when the vessels’ main and auxiliary engines are shut down. At times, shore power is also provided to aircraft and other land transport vehicles too.

However, shore power supply can also mean water supplies. We ensure that fresh water is available at all times on top of our electric power supply.
