Reducing port pollution with cold ironing

In this video, Mrs Phoebe Chongchua of Live Fit Magazine shows how cold ironing is providing vessels with shore power.  This segment made possible by SDG&E, The Port of San Diego, and The Green Business Network. The Green Business Network is an integrated energy efficiency and sustainability effort spearheaded by the Port of San Diego and San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E). Members of the Network which include Port tenant restaurants, marinas, hotels and attractions all striving to reduce their environmental impact by taking advantage of free technical assistance, attending monthly training on green business tactics, and sharing best practices with fellow businesses.In the outbreak, I was open with you propecia before and after has changed my existence. It has become much more fun, and now I have to run. Just as it is incredible to sit.

Port of Seattle recognizes environmental achievements

The Port of Seattle presented its Green Gateway Partners Awards, which recognize the comprehensive environmental achievements of the port's cruise and containership lines. This year's award winners are Maersk Line, COSCO Container Lines America's Inc., Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruise Lines, Princess Cruises, and Holland America Line. "These awards show that maritime businesses are doing the right thing for the environment every day," said Tay Yoshitani, Port of Seattle CEO. "Their efforts have removed hundreds of tons of pollutants from Puget Sound air." The name of the awards - Green Gateway Partners - compliments the Port of Seattle's role as the Green Gateway for maritime trade between Asia and the American Heartland. A study released in 2009 showed that for cargo originating in much of Asia and bound for a wide range of destinations across the United States, routes through Seattle resulted in lower carbon emissions than other routes. The Green Gateway Partners Awards set as a minimum requirement participation in the Port's At-Berth Clean Fuels program or use of shore power. These and other environmental activities are assigned point values. Depending on the number of points earned, Green Gateway Partners can achieve one of four recognition levels - platinum, ...

CMA CGM adopts cold ironing to protect the environment

In 2008, California adopted a unique worldwide regulation mandating ships to connect to shore electrical power when docking at Californian ports: this is called "Cold Ironing" or AMP (Alternative Maritime power). Starting 2014, 50% of the vessels must be equipped with a target of 80% by 2020.The CMA CGM Group, involved in the preservation of the environement, installed the first device on the CMA CGM LIBRA (11 400 TEUs), deployed on the PEARL RIVER service.The ship has been connected successfully on January 19th at the port of Long Beach Pier J for its first stop of the year, setting the CMA CGM Group in accordance with requirements of the CARB calendar (California Air Resources Board) and creating the 1st cold ironing connection of a ship to this Long Beach terminal.Cold ironingor alternative maritime power (AMP), or shore power is the process of providing shoreside electrical power to a ship at berth while its main and auxiliary engines are turned off. Cold ironing permits emergency equipment, refrigeration, cooling, heating, lighting and other equipment to receive continuous electrical power while the ship loads or unloads its cargo. The U.S. State of California is requiring a percentage of ships calling there to use shore power by 2014. The Port of Oakland is implementing a High Voltage ...

Cold Ironing premiere for CMA CGM Libra ship

Air quality is a major public health concern in California which affects all sectors and in particular transportation. In 2008, California adopted a unique worldwide regulation mandating ships to connect to shore electrical power when docking at Californian ports: this is called "Cold Ironing" or AMP (Alternative Maritime power). Starting 2014, 50% of the vessels must be equipped with a target of 80% by 2020. The objective is to suppress harmful emissions of diesel engines (whether main or auxiliary) when the ships are docked. In order to achieve this goal, instead of using the ship's power station, the electricity needed to power the equipment on Board (reefers, lighting, electronics...) is being provided by a 6600V connection to the ground. Moreover, 6 ships deployed on transpacific services will be equipped with a "mobile container solution, making Cold Ironing (or AMP) a modular practice. This mobile solution can possibly be moved onto other ships fitted upon request, thus making Cold Ironing a practice that is flexible and easy to deploy. As an example, if a ship were to change line, the solution can be installed on another ship. The CMA CGM Group, involved in the preservation of the environement, installed the first ...

‘Cold Ironing’ confusion lifted

This allows the vessel to shut down its diesel engines thereby cutting all airborne emissions Confusion around a global standard over shore-to-ship electrical connections has recently been addressed by the publication of the IEC 'Publicly Available Standard' (IEC/ISO/IEEE 60092-510).This is aimed at ensuring global compatibility for connections, communication and protection, a leading engineering company said.UK-based ABB Marine and Cranes is promoting what it sees as the huge environmental and commercial benefits in the use of shore-to-ship high voltage electrical connection technology.Also known as 'cold ironing' and 'alternative marine power' this is essentially the port operator providing a connection to the local electricity network for the vessel.This allows the vessel to shut down its diesel engines thereby cutting all airborne emissions (CO2, plus other emissions such as NOx, SOx and particulate matter).In addition to the significant benefit to the environment, a reduction in noise pollution and vibration is realised, which has a positive effect on local communities, ABB said.Stuart Melling, ABB Marine and Crane business unit account manager said "This development removes some of the uncertainty a port and vessel operator would have around investing in this technology. The environmental benefits are clear, most of our customers accept this but also ...
