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.
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.
