Spanish renewable energy authorities to decarbonize the port of Pasaia



Iberdrola España has launched the implementation of "Onshore Power Supply", including supplying devices with renewable energy produced by photovoltaic farms. The system has implications for outgoing power grids while they are in port, so that engines (powering, among others, transfer pumps, refrigeration systems, lighting, output devices, etc.) can be marked. The aim of the system is to release emissions emitted into waste, as well as vibrations and pollutants generated during docking.

Project presented by Iberdrola España "Implementation of land power technologies and decarbonization of electricity supplies in the ports of Pasaia, Vigo and Alicante" received a grant of EUR 1.9 million from the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda.

The decarbonization project of the port of Pasaia, characteristic of Iberdrola España, is in line with the sources of the International Maritime Organization, which strives for the fastest transmission in maritime transport and net zero emissions by 2050, as well as the activities of the European Commission provided as part of the Fit for 55 services, which launch, among others. incl. promoting the use of energy in ports as one of the actions resulting from the European Union's decarbonization agreement.

Shipping company UECC will be the first company to use the new power source.

“Onshore power” could be launched in 2025.
