Why Shore Power?

Build cleaner ports and ships
with innovative onshore
power supplies.

It’s time to take charge and transform the way we power cleaner, safer, and more efficient ports, vessels and ferries to build more prosperous coastal communities.

Shore power technologies, also known as cold ironing, Onshore Power Supply (OPS) or Alternative Maritime Power (AMP), are the only solutions that cut emissions totally at berth. Shore power solutions enable the connection of ships in port to onshore power supplies that provide electricity for on-board services allowing diesel generators to be switched off.

The reduction in vessel emissions is no longer a nice-to-have and is increasingly becoming a legal requirement for the industry, following the latest standards and regulations.

Why is now the right time for Shore Power?

Anticipate regulations with proven,
industry standard solutions.

Shore power makes the ports and ships industry compliant with the strictest regulations

In Europe, the Directive 2014/94/EU on the Deployment of Alternative Fuel Infrastructure requires ports to progressively equip their berths to be shore power ready by 2025. In California, the Air Resources Board mandates that most vessels berthing at their port use shore power by 2027.

Adherence to electrical standards to ensure full compatibility

The international standard on shore power (ISO/IEC/IEEC 80005) has been in place to ensure worldwide compatibility and safe connection between ports and vessels.

Shore Power is a mature technology

Since the 1980s, when known as cold ironing, shore power has been implemented in hundreds of ports and ships around the world. Everyday containers, ferries, cruises, Ro/Ro vessels, navy ships, yachts and OSV are seamlessly connecting to onshore power supply solutions thanks to Cavotec.
