Scheveningen launches shore power installation

Seven shore power connection points are now available at the Dutch port.





Updated on 15 Mar 2017 11:48 GMT

The Dutch port of Scheveningen - the seaport of The Hague - has launched a new shore power installation at First Harbour.

Thanks to the new installation, vessels will now be able to connect to the port's power supply while at berth, thus reducing bunker costs and emissions.

In order to plug into Scheveningen's electrical power, vessels will first need to be adapted. A number of local ships are said to have already been modified.

Shore power is not completely new at Scheveningen harbour. It has already been available for cutters, small fishing boats and pleasure boats.

Connection points

Six connection points for shore power are available at the First Harbour: one on the short side of the harbour and five on the long side of the harbour for large fishing boats - also known as freezer trawlers. The port's Third Harbour has one connection point.

Details about the two locations have been provided below.

First Harbour
Length: 350 metres
Width: 140 metres
Depth: 8 metres

Third Harbour
Length: 120 metres
Width: 80 metres
Depth: 7 metres

Cooperation

The Department of Waterways and Public Works (Rijkswaterstaat) and shipping companies Cornelis Vrolijk B.V. (and subsidiary Jaczon B.V.) and W. van der Zwan & Zn B.V. were involved in the preparations for shore power.

Action plan

The installation for shore power forms part of The Hague's Air Quality Action Plan. The plan outlines what the municipality is doing together with businesses, residents, interest groups and the Dutch State to further improve the air quality in the city.
