Stillstrom will collaborate with Port of Aberdeen on a pioneering project to significantly reduce emissions from vessels on standby outside the port.
tillstrom and Port of Aberdeen will conduct a joint feasibility study into an innovative offshore renewable charging hub. The ocean clean-tech concept provides a platform for vessels to use electricity from either offshore wind or grid-energy, eliminating the need for vessels to consume fossil fuels while idling.
The product also allows for the charging of battery packs on applicable vessels.
The study, which will run until the end of the year, will develop a roadmap for the potential introduction of offshore charging infrastructure at the Port of Aberdeen.
Stillstrom and the Port will analyse the benefits, use cases, fundamental requirements, economics, and stake-holder involvement as part of the study.
Aberdeen’s ‘Green Port’ strategy is well developed and explores a wide range of emissions reduction opportunities, including quayside electrification, the use of alternative fuels and lower carbon power supplies, and sustainable waste management.
