Nidec ASI to supply Shore-to-ship power for Genoa
The Italian multinational Nidec ASI has signed a contract worth 8 million euros with Port System Authority of the Western Ligurian Sea to design and construct a ‘shore-to-ship’ project for the port of Genoa
This is an advanced electrical supply system that will enable docked vessels to plug in to the national grid from the dock, thereby accessing all the energy they need to be fully operative without having to switch on their on-board engines.
The project responds to the need to comply with the directives of the European Union which, since 2003, has been urging ports to adopt shore-to-ship systems in order to reduce the polluting emissions of vessels in port. By 2025 this recommendation will become binding for all European ports.
Thanks to the system devised by Nidec ASI, emissions of SOx, NOx, CO2 and PM, which are a significant source of pollution for densely populated areas, are considerably reduced, to the benefit of public health.
