Pilot shore power infrastructure set to be installed at the Greek port.



A pilot project to develop shore power at the Greek port of Killini was presented at an event held on July 20, which was organized by the Electrification in the Eastern Mediterranean (Elemed) project and Killini Port Authority.

The presentation event was opened by the Secretary General of the Hellenic Ministry of Shipping, Kalamatianos Dionysis-Charalampos, and Regional Vice Governor of Ilia, Western Greece, Giorgos Georgiopoulos, and was attented by public officials, representatives from the local community and social and institutional stakeholders.

During his welcome address, Dionysis-Charalampos spoke about the environmental, social and economic benefits that the implementation of shore power technology - also known as 'cold ironing' - is expected to bring.

The key elements of the Elemed project were presented by Panayiotis Mitrou, Technology & Innovation Manager, Marine & Offshore at Lloyd's Register South Europe.

Meanwhile, Professor Dimitrios Lyridis from the National Technical University of Athens, discussed the key concepts that could be implemented during the second phase of the Killini project, which would be suitable for smaller ports of the Eastern Mediterranean region.

At the end of the presentation event, several attendees were given a tour around the area where the pilot cold ironing infrastructure is set to be installed in Killini.

The Elemed project comprises three EU member states: Cyprus, Greece and Slovenia and is co-financed by the European Union's Connecting Europe Facility (CEF). It targets the introduction of cold ironing and hybrid ships across the Eastern Mediterranean Sea corridor.
