ARENA Arctic Maritime Cluster has funded a study lead by Hafenstrom aiming to contribute to counties ‘and municipalities’ revision of its climate and energy plans, we will study whether domestic maritime transport can stand for mitigation and how this can be implemented in key seaports.
The study will:
– Identify typical scehduled craft ships and their emissions while underway and docked in Troms
– Assess whether the connection to shore power can reduce emissions from such scheduled service vessels
– Assessing investment requirements for port and vessel stating the Return-of-Investment strategies
The AMK cluster has a lot of companies who can contribute to ease the implementation of shore electricity to ships i Arctic areas. A new strategy for electrification of ships and ports will give the utility sector a new leg for business development in transiting to the new, green economy.
