The Port of Long Beach, its terminal customers and shipping lines are investing millions of dollars in equipment to allow vessels to “plug in” to clean electricity at berth and dramatically cut air pollution in advance of upcoming state deadlines, officials reported Monday at a special “Shore Power Summit.”
When ships use shore power, they tap landside electricity for their power needs at berth – lights, pumps, communications, refrigeration – instead of running diesel-fueled auxiliary on-board engines.
On Tuesday February 19, 2013 the Port of Long Beach Harbor Commission approved a plan to build a demonstration of an innovative “Green Wall” along the Terminal Island Freeway. While in the past it served to transport navy personnel to nearby housing, for the past decade the TI Freeway has served largely as a service road for the goods movement industry.
