What is Shore Power (cold ironing)?

Shore Power, also known as Cold Ironing, is the process of providing power to cover the energy demands of ships from a source at the shore.

Ships can shut down their engines while berthed and plug into an onshore power source. Shore power transfers the ship’s power load to the onshore power supply without disruption to onboard services

This green tech solution can help to eliminate the emissions of auxiliary engines at berth, resulting in a global reduction of emissions, especially if the grid powering the ships is an environmentally friendly energy source. Yara Marine develops innovative shore power technologies for the maritime industry.

Why Shore Power?

Yara Marine delivers a tailor-made shore-to-ship power solution and can be your partner from the idea to commissioned system delivery.

Reduced port tariff

Many ports offer an environmental discount on the port tariff with shore power installed. Usually, Environmental Ship Index (ESI) and Clean Shipping Index (CSI) – form the basis for the discount.

Priority pass in ports

Ports often give ships with shore power-system priority docking or advantageous time slots for ferries. Ports also have a number of financial incentives to induce vessels to connect to an onshore power supply, like reduced power prices.

Mandatory shore power to come

October 2020, the EU parliament added to the coming MRV regulation that “Emissions from ships at berth. Companies shall ensure that, by 2030, no ships under their responsibility emit GHG emissions when at berth.” Meaning everyone needs to install shore power by 2030 if not running on NH3, H2, or similar carbon-neutral fuels.

Reduce emissions

Providing an onshore power supply for vessels at berth results in significant environmental gains. Carbon dioxide emissions decrease substantially and emissions of sulphur dioxide and nitric oxide are reduced to a minimum.

Rapid development in ports

Ports all over the world and especially within the EU are investing in shore side shore power. 

Act now to receive substantial funding

Several environmental programs refund a substantial part of investments in cold ironing solutions, but only for the first movers. For example. Norwegian ENOVA zero-emission fund now offers 40% financial support onshore power, exclusively for 2021.
