Rozenburg shore power
The ships owned by Heerema Marine Contractors have their permanent berths on Rozenburg peninsula. Heerema wants to supply its large offshore crane ships with sustainable energy while they are moored in the Calandkanaal. That is why Heerema, Rotterdam Port Authority and Eneco are realising a shore power connection for the Calandkanaal.
Sustainable energy for crane ships
This connection supplies the large offshore crane ships with sustainable energy when they are moored on the canal. The energy will originate from the wind turbines on the headland. Because the diesel generators of the ships can be switched off as soon as a ship is connected to shore power, almost all emissions and fine particles will disappear. This will improve the air quality and reduce CO2 emissions. It will also reduce noise nuisance due to the fact that the engines will be switched off.
