Shore power for merchant vessels

As port authorities and shipping lines expand investment in sustainable technologies, shore power is one of several approaches that are becoming increasingly widely used. This article provides an overview of the growth in the use of shore power at container and bulk, and oil and gas applications, as well as key recommendations to implement it successfully.

Cavotec’s Shore Power Innovation Hits New Highs

With the global ports industry taking substantive steps to operate more sustainably and cost-effectively, leading shore power expert with the Cavotec engineering group, Luciano Corbetta, describes how shore power, or ‘cold ironing’ systems are increasingly being adopted, and adapted for port authorities, shipping lines and ship owners.

Making cold ironing make sound business sense

Shore-to-ship power supply is frequently presented as a way for port authorities and shipping lines to substantially reduce environmental impact, while the economic case for shore power has tended to remain more elusive.
