Port of Valencia aims at building its own electric sub-station for ships to stop engines and plugin to the grid

13/08/2019. As announced by Economía3, Port of Valencia is willing to provide for its own sub-station to eventually reach energy self-sufficiency, among other measures. This infrastructure will allow ships to stop their engines and plugin the grid while calling at the Port, thus importantly reducing air emissions within the Port of Valencia. This electric sub-station that is planned to be commissioned by last quarter this year, will provide for 40 MW of power in total though it will be realized in two 20 MW steps each, amounting an approximate 8 million Euros investment.
