The Port of Hueneme informs that it has performed a load bank test of its recently installed substation making the Port ready to provide a reliable, steady source of shore-side power for ships at berth.

With the passage of AB 32 by the California state assembly, programs were put in place to allow ships at berth in California ports to turn off their more polluting marine engines [cold ironing] dramatically reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

The Port’s just completed project “represents a giant leap forward for us and the community” said Port CEO and Director Kristin Decas. “Over the lifetime of this project (30 years), annual emissions from refrigerated cargo vessels also known as “reefer vessels” will be reduced”.

Anticipated reductions are as follows:
°    Particulate Matter (PM) reductions of 2.58 tons 

°    Nitrogen oxide (NOx) reductions of 151.08 tons
°    Carbon monoxide (CO) reductions of 9.35 tons
°    Hydrocarbon (HC) reductions of 5.24 tons
°    Carbon dioxide (CO2) reductions of 4,122.43 tons

“This is a model of strong public policy working for the betterment of our community and region. This project represents perhaps the single largest reduction in air emissions by one project in the history of the county,” said Port Commission President Jason Hodge. Further commenting that, “The success of the Port ties directly to our community and strategic partners. Together we are creating jobs and building a cleaner environment for the citizens of the Port, community and region.”
