Shore power to be available to ships by the end of 2013


Shore power is to be available to ships at all international terminals of California ports by the end of 2013 with Long Beach and Los Angeles offering "cold ironing" at 13 terminals in total, according to the Shipping Gazette.
Cold ironing enables a ship's auxiliary engines to be switched off, reducing pollution from ships at berth by up to 95 per cent, according to Port of Long Beach, which along with LA is involved in anti-air pollution programmes supported by the California Air Resources Board (CARB).
Half of all visits by container, refrigerated cargo and cruise vessels will be powered by electricity by January 2014, said an ARB mandate, according to a report from London's Lloyd's List. Currently, nearly half of the two ports' terminals offer shore power at least some berths.
PierPass, a truck access scheme in force at LA and Long Beach terminals, supports the shore-power initiative which it hopes will offer "significant air quality benefits" to port workers and nearby communities, said the programme president Bruce Wargo.
