With reports revealing the detrimental contributions of maritime transport towards GHG and SO2 emissions, lawmakers are calling for strict measures to reduce and monitor the maritime carbon footprint from traditional diesel-powered onboard generators. In the spirit of maritime sustainability, Norway has installed more than 150 shore power projects ranging from tens to thousands of KVA. Some Norwegian ports have joined incentive-based schemes to speed up the deployment of onboard shore power systems such as reductions in port fees and other amenities if the vessel achieves the necessary criteria for indices such as the Environmental Ship Index (ESI) and the Environmental Port Index (EPI).

The German Ministry of Economics and Energy also awards funds from the Energy and Climate Fund to support the deployment of environmentally friendly technologies such as shore power at ports. Two such notable projects include their grant of EUR 42 million for shore power in port Hamburg and a project underway at the Port of Rostock with an indicative budget of EUR 76.83 million and a timeline of 2020 to 2023.

Other notable efforts across Europe include Spain’s Port Authority of Las Palmas which will launch a first pilot under the OPS master plan to power docked ships from the grid through 16 double connecting points of 80kW each. The OPS master plan overall has a budget of close to EUR 4.4 million and is co-financed with  EUR 1.28 million by the Connecting Europe Facility – CEF program for the construction of the Trans-European Transport Networks (TEN-T). Up until 2021, eleven ships which travel extensively through the Spanish ports have been installed with onboard shore power and are ready to be connected to the power systems installed on the ports.

Just a couple of hops over on the map, the AdSP (port system authority of western Sicily) and the RTI business group have signed a concession of over EUR 22 million to create “Smart Ports” in western Sicily in February 2021. The project targets the port facilities of Palermo, Termini Imerese, Trapani, and Porto Empedocle. At Italy’s port of Genoa, Nidec Industrial Solutions will supply two 6 MVA static frequency converters which, with the overloads required, can reach up to 12 MVA, as well as switchboards and LV/MV transformers, connecting cables for the various devices, and any accessory components for that port. In simpler words, Nidec is stepping up to support shore power efforts.
