OPS promotes areas free of noise and air pollution in ports

06/06/2019 Electricity supply to ships at berth allows definition of zones without noise and air pollution in ports. Port authorities of Tenerife, Las Palmas and Baleares are completing definition of zones without noise and emissions at those berths which are provided with on-shore power supply from the electric grid.

These berths can be visualized below,

San Sebastian de la Gomera                                                                          Santa Cruz de la Palma

Santa Cruz de Tenerife                                                                                              Palma de Mallorca

Designation of these zones is being established in other ports in Europe. For example, the Port of Amsterdam has designated up to 4 zones the same as the one indicated below where OPS facilities are available at berth and generators are prohibited.
