The trial started in December. Mainly vessels from Wilson shipping company have taken part so far. In total, five different mobile shore power systems will be tested over a five-month period. Engie, Bredenoord and Skoon’s hybrid system is currently being tested: a Big Battery Box, integrated with a motor generator on biofuel (HVO).
As Parkkade was very busy over Christmas, the period in which this system was used on Parkkade was extended by a week. This gave more vessels the opportunity to connect. The next system will be installed in the second half of next week. The trial is a partnership between the Municipality of Rotterdam and the Port of Rotterdam Authority.
The five trial participants are:
- ENGIE Ventures & Integrated Solutions B.V.
- Hybride system with a Big Battery Box
- Aggreko Benelux
- PON Power
- Mobiele Stroom B.V.
- JP-Energiesystemen B.V
