Switched on ship-power

Industry Database

A Chinese post-panamax container vessel, the Xin Ya Zhou, has had a successful trial in connecting to shore-based Alternative Maritime Power (AMP) at the Port of Los Angeles in California.

AMP, or 'cold ironing', involves vessels turning off their engines while in port, and connecting to shore-side electricity, helping to reduce pollution in port areas and surrounding communities.

Cavotec, who engineered the connection, expects interest in AMP will continue to rise - fuelled by rising costs and environmental concerns.
