Copenhagen Malmö Port (CMP) and Danish shipping and logistics company DFDS have reached an agreement to establish a shore power facility in Copenhagen.

With this move, the Crown Seaways and Pearl Seaways vessels will be able to receive electricity from land through the shore power facility, that would reduce emissions of air contaminated particles such as NOx, SOx and particulate matter.

The parties are engaged in a joint effort, which means that the DFDS vessels will be able to be connected to shore power from next year. With DFDS’ scheduled ferry services, with daily calls, it is always the same ship that sails in shuttle service between Oslo and Copenhagen, “this makes it reasonable to establish a shore power facility,” the company explained.

The work on the designing and planning of the facility is now underway, and the construction will commence in 2020.

“We look forward to working with Copenhagen Malmö Port and the City of Copenhagen so that we can secure the ferry service between the two capitals in the future,” Torben Carlsen, CEO of DFDS, said.
