Port of Barcelona to invest in new onshore power system
The Port of Barcelona recently adopted the Nexigen project to decarbonise port activity and improve air quality through the implementation of a new onshore power supply system connecting ships to electricity at docking spaces. €110 million will be invested by the port to complete this project.
The objective is to have electrified all the cruise berths, wharfs and the ferry terminals of the Sant Bertran dock by 2030. This would help to drastically reduce the port’s CO2 and NOx emissions. The electrification of the docks is a key element in becoming climate-neutral by 2050.
