This MoS wider benefit Action (twinned with 2015-EU-TM-0236-S) is focused on the assessment of the possibilities to introduce onshore power supply and electric propulsion alternative for ships in the Eastern Mediterranean. It includes four ports in three EU countries: Cyprus (Limassol port), Greece (Port of Killini, Port of Piraeus) and under the twinned project – Slovenia (Port of Koper). The Action consists of background and preparatory studies aimed at providing a basis for preparation of a front end engineering design (FEED) for cold ironing installations in four ports with a pilot action demonstrating cold ironing at the Port of Killini.
The ports are located on the Orient/East-Med as well as Baltic-Adriatic Corridors and the Action is a part of a global project on implementing environmentally friendly maritime transportation in the Adriatic-Ionian Sea. The Action will promote onshore power supply solutions and electricity based propulsion systems for vessels leading to improved environmental performance of shipping and ports.
