Case study: Techelec

A user-friendly IoT platform for every skipper

Scroll

Air quality becomes increasingly important in port environments. Organizations like World Ports Climate Initiative (WPCI) urge vessels to minimize the use of diesel generators for on-board power supply.

Our client offers a sustainable solution for vessels at berth, providing electricity via Onshore Power Supply (OPS) systems. Rombit.Studio was asked to enhance the user-friendliness and transparency of the solution, so we turned it into Smart Shore Boxes with an intuitive platform.
