Supplying Electricity to Ships in the Harbor (Cold Ironing)

Supplying Electricity to Ships in the Harbor (Cold Ironing)

In recent years, pressure on the shipping industry in general and on seaports in particular to reduce greenhouse gas emissions for the purpose of improving the quality of the environment has increased. In this context, one of the significant measures to reduce pollution and improve air quality at the port and around the city is to change the source of the electric power supplied to ships anchored for loading and unloading from the auxiliary motors of the ships to a power source on the shore. This process is called "Cold Ironing" or On-Shore Power Supply (OPS).
