Shore power, charging infrastructure could cut CO2 emissions in Norway by 12.5 million tonnes
Shore power and charging infrastructure could reduce CO2 emissions by as much as 12.5 million tonnes at ports in Norway every year – this is one of the main conclusions of a report compiled by a pool of experts from ABB, DNV GL, the Port of Oslo, and Cavotec, working under the auspices of ReCharge, an initiative that seeks to pave the way for zero emission ports in the Scandinavian country.
World’s first combined automated mooring and shore power project on course
The world’s first battery-powered ferry was delivered recently, heralding a new era in environmentally responsible shipping. The vessel, which will serve a high-frequency route in Norway, will use our very first combined automated mooring and shore power system.
