Shore-to-Ship Power - A state-of-the art electrification solution to make ports more sustainable

Shore-to-Ship power is the state-of-the-art electrification solution to make ports more sustainable, reducing emissions from ships while berthed.

Allowing vessels to switch off their on-board diesel generators during their port stay and connecting them to the port electrical grid, shore-to-ship power allow harbors to reduce their environmental footprint , improving the working, transit, and living condition of citizens in port areas. The ships' power load is seamlessly transferred to the shore-side power supply without disruption to onboard services. Compliance to global IEC/ISO/IEEE standards allow interchangeability of vessels, independently from the port where they are connecting. Shore-to-ship power eliminates all local polluting emissions by vessels and noise generated by auxiliary engines.
