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 electricity 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 electricity when they are moored on the canal. The electricity will originate from the wind turbines on the headland. When the diesel generators of the ships are 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.
