Shore connection solution: emissions-free shore-to-ship connection system
Ports are often perceived by the local community as a source of pollution and noise, and the issue is often linked to the emissions generated by ships at berth. Indeed, ships account for 6% of Sox, 15% of Nox and 2% of global CO2 emissions. They will have to meet new regulations outlined in Marpol 6, which was drawn up by the IMO and a number of pioneering countries.
Ships and ports need to invest in new technology to reduce pollution and to be compliant with these stricter regulations. A number of solutions are available but the shore connection technology is the only one that can cut all emissions from ships at berth.
