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.
