Shore power, the best option for ships at berth
Ports are the most visible interfaces and direct links between the neighbouring population and the maritime industry. The increasing pressure from coastal communities to reduce environmental and health impacts associated with the shipping business places harbours on the front line of social responsibility and action taking.
Port entities and ship operators need to invest in new technologies to reduce air pollution and to be compliant with the ever stricter regulations. A number of solutions are available, but to switch to shore power is indisputably the best option for ships at berth.

Preventive maintenance is the common strategy in the shipping industry: according to manufacturer recommendations and classification society requirements, maintenance plans are scheduled in advance so as to reduce downtime. It makes it easier to anticipate and plan resource availability (material, dock, human resources, and so forth). However this preventive approach is not perfect and cannot guarantee zero failure when shipping.
