Stord Hamnestell has selected BluEco® Shore Power System
Blueday Technology has signed an agreement with Stord Hamnestell for delivery of a complete shore power solution. The BluEco® Shore Power System secures Nattrutekaien to emerge as a zero-emission port.
Shipping is facing a major challenge in reducing polluting greenhouse gas emissions. Shipping accounts for about 3-5% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. NOx, SOx and particle emissions from ships in port also represents a significant deterioration of the local environment and contributes to health problems. In recent years, there has been an increasing focus on vessels docked to the quay to be connected to the local electricity grid to cut these emissions.
The BluEco® Shore Power System enable vessels docked in the port to use all the electricity needed for operating their onboard systems, including ventilation and cooling, from the local power network. Today, this energy requirement is largely met set of own auxiliary machinery, which leads to poor energy efficiency, CO2 , NOx and particulate emissions.
By using the BluEco® Shore Power System the port secure reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and noise as well as vibrations, improving environmental conditions for people in and around the port. It also allows an opportunity 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 second half of 2020.
