Onshore Power Supply (OPS) is also known as Shore side electricity (SSE), Shore
Connection, Shore-to-ship Power, Cold ironing, Alternative Maritime Power ...
EOPSA, A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
While in port, ships use their Auxiliary Engines (AE) to produce electricity.Shore-side energy (SSE) has the potential to eliminate ships engines emissions in ports and cities, reducing each pollutant by about 90% and greenhouse gas emissions by 50%, as well as reducing noise, vibration and engine wear-and-tear.
EOPSA' members are building and manufacturing the advanced solutions for transforming today’s ships stopovers in ports to be greener, competitive and strategic.
A truly sustainable future will be based on safe, efficient and innovative technologies and structures.
With the establishment of the European Onshore Power Supply Association we are working to broaden and accelerate our greenhouse gasses emission reduction and make a strong contribution toward full sustainability in Europe and the world.
The maritime industry is the cornerstone of our global trade and plays a key role in our international relations; in 2019, 80% of our global trade of goods was carried by sea.
EOPSA’s mission, together with our founding members, is to bring together key players in order to promote innovation, speed up installations, advocate for global solutions and reciprocal adoption along shipping routes.
EOPSA communicates, shares best practices and ensures close collaboration and coordination between all its members and key stakeholders.
By bringing together an ecosystem around energy companies, port authorities and maritime operators, EOPSA will represent their interest in the EU, cooperate with the authorities such as the International Maritime Office and ensure best value for its members.
