Greener Power for Cruise Ships Docking in SF

Friday, October 08, 2010

According to a report from The San Francisco Examiner, San Francisco launched California’s first shoreside electrical power supply for cruise ships docked at the waterfront. The Port calculated that the shoreside power supply will prevent 140 pounds of diesel soot emissions and 1.3 tons of airborne nitrogen oxide emissions for every 10-hour ship call. It will also reduce carbon dioxide by 19.7 tons. This new system, developed by Princess Cruises in 2001, is not only the first in the state but just the fourth in the world, according to port officials.
