Why ShorePower?

Build cleaner ports and ships.

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

ShorePower 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. ShorePower enables the connection of ships in port to shore-side electricity to power on-board services, allowing diesel generators to be switched off.

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

ShorePower makes ports and ships industry compliant within 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 ShorePower-ready by 2025. In California, the Air Resources Board mandates that most vessels berthing at their port use ShorePower by 2027.

Adherence to electrical standards to ensure full compatibility

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

ShorePower is a mature technology 

Since the 1980s, ShorePower has been implemented in hundreds of ports and ships. Every day containers, ferries, cruises, Ro/Ro vessels, navy ships, yachts and OSV are seamlessly connecting to ShorePower solutions from Cavotec.
