China's Grand Canal ports to provide shore power for ships by 2019

28 Sep 2017 07:01 GMT

Project to install shore power facilities set to lower bunker consumption and emissions.



China's Ministry of Transport, National Energy Administration and State Grid Corporation has signed an agreement to install shore power facilities along the Grand Canal, which runs over 2,500 kilometres from Beijing to Hangzhou.

The cold ironing facilities are to also be installed in ports on the east coast and along the Yangtze River.

According to the agreement, public ports along the Grand Canal will all be able to provide shoreside electrical power for docking ships within the next two years.

The Chinese government said that the 130 small shore power facilities installed in three ports along the Grand Canal in Zhejiang Province could cut carbon dioxide emissions by 3,950 tonnes and lower fuel consumption by 1,250 tonnes a year.

The state grid company currently has more than 600 shore power facilities in ports.

The Grand Canal is the longest canal or artificial river in the world. From Beijing, it passes through Tianjin and the provinces of Hebei, Shandong, Jiangsu and Zhejiang to the city of Hangzhou. It connects to the Hai River, Huai River, Qiantang River, Yangzi River and Yellow River.
