Fjord Base has again selected BluEco® Shore Power solution
Blueday Technology has again signed an agreement with Fjord Base for delivery of a another complete BluEco® Shore Power System and continues to contribute a low emission society.
It confirms the confidence Blueday have in deliveries of shore power systems that combine technologies and knowledge in the marine sector. The shore-to-ship power solutions enable vessels docked in the port to draw all the electricity needed for operating their on-board 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, installation and commissioning to be completed by Q1 – 2022
