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.
Automated mooring can cut pollution equal to a million cars. Free tool available for ports to calculate impact.
A new case study by Starcrest Consulting Group shows fast mooring with Cavotec’s MoorMaster automated mooring system can reduce annual carbon emissions from container vessels by tens of thousands of tonnes in a single port.
Cavotec wins EUR 5M in additional cleantech orders to equip world’s largest container ships with ShorePower systems
Cavotec has won a series of orders in the second quarter with a total value of EUR 5M to equip the world’s largest new-build container ships with ShorePower systems. This is in addition to EUR 3M in orders secured in the first quarter. These systems enable dramatic pollution reductions and are the latest example of how we are enabling the decarbonization of the global ports and shipping sector.
Cavotec wins multi-million euro cleantech contract. Shore power to cut ship emissions by 90% in Malta's Valletta Grand Harbour.
Cavotec has been awarded a contract by Nidec ASI as part of their EUR 12 million deal to provide ShorePower to five cruise liner berths at Malta’s Valletta Grand Harbour. The project is part of a major EU funded initiative by Infrastructure Malta to electrify the entire harbour and reduce harmful portside ship emissions by 90%.
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.
Maritime industry under pressure on emissions
One of the world’s most conservative sectors is now witnessing a fundamental shift as efforts are made to transform its environmental footprint under intense pressure from its stakeholders. Across the maritime industry – typically slow to change – steps are being taken to reduce emissions and operate more sustainably, with the ultimate goal of achieving zero emissions.
Automated mooring substantially cuts vessel emissions: report
A new report demonstrates how automated mooring system (AMS) makes substantial reductions in CO2 emissions produced by ferries during mooring operations.
Cavotec supports sustainable development of China’s cruise sector
As ports, shipping lines, and authorities in China strive to reduce emissions from shipping, our innovative shore power technologies are playing a key role in delivering substantive change.
Cavotec signs breakthrough EUR 9m orders for unmanned mooring of electric ferries
Cavotec is set to revolutionise the operation of e-vessels by delivering and maintaining its automated, unmanned, mooring system MoorMaster™ for e-ferry ports across Norway. With these orders, MoorMaster™ is now the leading technology to safely and efficiently moor e-vessels, a segment set for rapid growth.
Cavotec connects Asia’s first e-ferry to electrical power
Our innovative charging technologies have connected Asia’s first e-ferry to electrical power, eliminating emissions and dramatically reducing operating costs, and highlighting Cavotec’s leading position in this increasingly important segment.
Canadian ports cut emissions with Cavotec shore power technologies
Cavotec shore power systems are helping ports in Canada make substantial reductions in cruise and container ship emissions, with the Montreal Port Authority (MPA) recently reporting that its shore power initiatives are expected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by some 2,800 tonnes a year.
Cavotec and Port of Los Angeles mark environmental co-operation with inauguration of shore power system for USS Iowa
Global engineering group Cavotec, the Port of Los Angeles (POLA) and the historic Battleship IOWA museum unveiled a public Alternative Maritime Power (AMP) educational exhibit during a recent reception commemorating Battleship USS IOWA’s new shore-side power connection, close to the Port of Los Angeles’ World Cruise Center.
