Hydrogen-generated shore power trialed by UK port
Forth Ports, a port operator and tug owner, is set to receive £535,000 (US$679,827) from the UK Department for Transport as part of a consortium.
This funding will be utilised to develop a pioneering approach in the UK for clean and sustainable hydrogen energy. The aim is to significantly reduce carbon emissions from vessels during their time at berth.
The government and consortium partners are optimistic that a groundbreaking demonstration at a UK port will pave the way for the adoption of a circular-economy approach to port decarbonisation throughout the country.
