RST and Samskip launch first shore power green initiative Themis Karalis
Rotterdam Shortsea Terminals (RST) and Samskip have joined forces to launch Green Shore Power initiative, which aims to reduce CO2 emissions produced by vessels docked by providing new clean shore powered energy solutions.
The shore power solution is the first of its kind in the Dutch ports. The celebration of this milestone event was on 21 July, where delegations from Samskip, RST, Port of Rotterdam (HBR), Municipality of Rotterdam and Harbour Electronical Services (HES) gathered.
During the celebration, “Samskip Innovator” provided an onsite demonstration of the smooth transition between ship power and the new shore power.
The new shore power endeavor was largely possible through the expertise of HES which prepared and outfitted Samskip’s shortsea vessel “Innovator” to receive shore power. The power supply unit at the quay of RST has been installed by Jolectra.
