Nidec ASI, part of the Energy and Infrastructure Division of the Nidec Group and one of the groups committed to economic development with a view to greater sustainability, consolidates its growth in Europe in the sector of electric mobility by winning the tender for implementing a ‘shore-to-ship’ project for the Port of Sète, in the south of France.

Nidec ASI has in fact signed a contract worth €2.5 million with Port Sud de France, aimed at setting up innovative electrical power systems that will allow ships moored in the port to draw the energy required to be fully operational from the quays, without the need to keep their polluting and noisy onboard diesel engines running.

The project will thus have a positive impact on the quality of life of local communities and on tourism, a key sector in the French economy, while also complying with EU directives, which will become binding by 2025 and which stipulate that all European ports must adopt electrification systems for port quays.

The port of Sète is located along the coast of the Gulf of Lion (in Mediterranean France), in the Hérault region. It is a multifunctional port, which offers a commercial area, an area dedicated to fishing boats and a recreational craft area, which spreads throughout the city area.
