Dunkirk becomes the first French port to offer 'cold ironing' for box ships
Date:2020-01-13 Readers:
THE channel port of Dunkirk has become the first in France to offer shore power to shipping lines.

The first hook-up took place on January 8 when CMA CGM's 17,000 TEU APL Singapura docked at Dunkirk's Terminal des Flandres, reports UK's The Loadstar, citing a report in WorldCargo News.

Also known as "cold ironing", turning to local power networks rather than running engines while in port can lead to significant improvement in air quality in the immediate hinterland, as previous projects in ports in Europe and US have amply demonstrated.
