This Ministry of Slovenia (MoS) wider benefit Action (twinned with 2015-EU-TM-0235-S) is focused on the assessment of the possibilities to introduce onshore power supply and electric propulsion alternative for ships in the Eastern Mediterranean. It includes Slovenia (Port of Koper) and under the twinned project Cyprus (Limassol port) and Greece (Port of Killini, Port of Piraeus).
The Action consists of background and preparatory studies aimed at providing a basis for preparation of a front end engineering design (FEED) for cold ironing installations, in particular in the port of Koper.
The ports are located on the Orient/East-Med as well as Baltic-Adriatic Corridors and the Action is part of a global project on implementing environmentally friendly maritime transportation in Adriatic-Ionian Sea. The Action will promote onshore power supply solutions and electricity based propulsion systems for vessels leading to improved environmental performance of shipping and ports.
