Shipping along the coast accounts for large greenhouse gas emissions and significant local air and noise pollution. Decarbonisation through electrification and shore power not only serves upcoming EU legislation, but first and foremost, social, health and economic objectives.
“We are very pleased to be chosen again by Fjord Base for this shore power system project” says Kenneth Husebø, sales director shore power at Blueday Technology. “Fjord Base have already several shore power connection at their operating terminals ensuring contribution towards marine harbour sector electrification, decarbonization, and greenhouse gas reduction initiatives.”
The shore power solution enable vessels moored at the terminal to use all the electricity needed for operating their onboard systems, including ventilation and cooling, from the local grid network. This results in reductions in greenhouse gas and noise emissions as well as vibrations, improving environmental conditions for people in and around the terminal.
