Stord has selected Bluedays solution for a low emission harbour
Blueday Technology has signed another agreement, this time with Stord Hamnestell for delivery of a complete shore power solution. Bluedays SMART Shore Power System secures also Eldøyane Stord Base to move forward towards, and emerge as a zero-emission harbor. Eldøyane Stord Base has plans for further development for handling PSV, AHTS, IMR and other coasting vessels.
The shore-to-ship power solutions enable vessels docked in the port to draw all the electricity needed for operating their onboard systems, including ventilation and cooling, from the local power network. The use of shore-side power allows ships to shut off their diesel engines while docked in port. This results in reductions in greenhouse gas and noise emissions as well as vibrations, improving environmental conditions for people in and around the port. It also allows an opportunity window for maintenance work on the engines.
Blueday Technology will be responsible for the design, engineering, supply, installation and commissioning of the project. The operating center in Stavanger, will execute this contract, scheduled to be completed during the first half of 2019.
