Cavotec shore power solutions help Port of Marseille to reduce surge in ship emissions in wake of pandemic
Shore power is increasingly seen as an effective way to reduce emissions from ships in port. The problem has intensified in the wake of the pandemic, as cruise ships that previously stayed in ports for a matter of hours, stay at the same berths continually running their conventionally-powered engines. Cavotec's shore power solutions are addressing the issue.
