The Port of Southampton has received the Clean Maritime Innovator’s title at the Maritime UK Solent Awards for its efforts in installing shore power.
Accepting nominations from small, medium, and large organisations across 13 categories, the awards acknowledge maritime innovation and excellence within the Solent.
The event was held at the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, home to HMS Warrior and HMS Victory.
Shore power is available at two Cruise Terminals at the Port of Southampton – Horizon and Mayflower – for any shore-power-enabled cruise ship.
Alastair Welch, ABP Southampton Regional Director, said: “We are incredibly proud to win this award. Implementing shore power is a collaborative approach working with several organisations to ensure the technology is installed and funded in a way that supports a sustainable and environmentally focused sector and port.”
