Cavotec shore power solutions help Port of Marseille to reduce surge in ship emissions in wake of pandemic
Shore power is increasingly seen as an effective way to reduce emissions from ships in port. The problem has intensified in the wake of the pandemic, as cruise ships that previously stayed in ports for a matter of hours, stay at the same berths continually running their conventionally-powered engines. Cavotec's shore power solutions are addressing the issue.
The Five Steps to Take Charge of Portside Pollution
The shipping industry is responsible for more than 2.5% of the world’s emissions. If the shipping sector were a country, it would be the sixth largest polluter in the world. But we can change this. We have the technology today that can be retrofitted to existing ships to reduce harmful emissions. We also have the technology to upgrade our ports to reduce pollution.
Technological innovation can alleviate port congestion and improve supply chain resilience
In recent weeks, ports around the world have been hit by delays and backlogs caused by factors including a surge in demand, a lack of empty containers, and the coronavirus – the latter manifesting as mass quarantining, social distancing, illness, and lockdowns. In the UK, these issues were compounded by fears of a no-deal Brexit.
