The north-west port of Kandla, India, has invited interested parties to bid for a contract to provide shore power to ships berthing at the port, India's Diligent Media reports.

"In line with international conventions and the government's initiative to reduce pollution from marine sources, the port has invited tenders for installing power supply arrangements to ships calling at the port when they are alongside berth," Kandla Port Trust chairman Ravi Parmar is quoted as saying.

As well as providing electricity to seagoing ships at the Gujarat port, the cold ironing facility would also be able to supply power to local service vessels, such as tugs.

The planned facility will be able to provide electric power to up to four vessels at a time and have a total capacity of one megawatt.

When seagoing ships are berthed and the port's tugs are not attending to ships, they will be able to switch off their engines while docked and connect to shoreside electricity, thus saving on bunker fuel and reducing emissions.

Tugs at the nearby port of Vadinar are also set to be provided with onshore electricity. Kandla Port Trust is responsible for providing pilotage and associated services for the Vadinar Oil Terminal.

Currently, V.O. Chidambaranar Port (formerly Tuticorin), located in the south, is the only port in India offering shore power to vessels.
