A container terminal facility has become the first in South China to offer shore power at all berths.

DaChan Bay Terminals’ second phase shore power installation project has been approved. The phase commenced on 25 February 2019 and a preliminary acceptance was granted in late September by the China Classification Society.

Brian Yeung, managing director of DaChan Bay Terminals, said: “We are proud to have such an achievement which marks a milestone in our continuous efforts to help protect the environment. We are committed to sustainability and will continue to introduce new initiatives to enhance our performance in this aspect.”

During the test period, a total of three ships have deployed shore power for more than 10 hours. All data collected were satisfactory reflecting the stability, reliability, and high safety standard of DaChan Bay Terminals’ shore power system.

The acceptance meeting was joined by relevant authorities including Transportation Bureau of Shenzhen Municipal, Shenzhen Municipal Bureau of Ecology and Environment, Development and Reform Commission of Shenzhen Municipality, Transportation Bureau of Bao’an District, Ecology and Environment Bureau of Bao’an District, Development and Reform Bureau of Bao’an District.

Dong Yanze, director of port and Shipping Administration of Transportation Bureau of Shenzhen Municipal said: “Shenzhen port has the largest number of berths with shore power capability in China. The shore power project has the full support of Shenzhen government and we look forward to the participation of other terminals and relevant stakeholders in the development of the Green Port in Shenzhen, and vessels switch to shore power while berthing.”
