Holland America Line, a part of Carnival Corporation, will retrofit three of its vessels with shore power connectors in an effort to further minimize the environmental impact of its fleet.

Namely, the cruise company hired Swiss-based power and automation technology group ABB for the work, that will allow the ships to draw on land-based electrical grids when docked in port.

With ABB’s shore connection technology, ships can turn off all engines and switch to electricity generated in a power plant on shore, tackling emissions and noise while also achieving greater energy efficiency.

After having executed three new installations, Holland America Line will proceed to feature a total of 11 cruise ships outfitted with ABB’s shore power connectors.

“Holland America Line remains firmly committed to including new technical solutions that truly advance its policy for sustainable operations,” Orlando Ashford, President, Holland America Line, said.
