Three Finnlines vessels to get shore power solutions

Ro-ro and ro-pax operator Finnlines has enhanced its commitment to sustainable operations by equipping three vessels with Yara Marine’s shore power solution to reduce fuel consumption, emissions, and noise in port.

At the end of March 2022 Finnlines and Yara Marine Technologies signed a contract to install Yara Marine’s shore power solution on board three vessels.

The turnkey solution will allow these vessels to connect to the local power grid when in port, switching to electricity rather than using auxiliary engines running on fuel.

The installations, which are scheduled for completion in 2022, will help Finnlines eliminate shipboard emissions in port and thus reduce its environmental footprint.

The use of shore power by ships is particularly beneficial to portside communities, whose quality of life is impacted by concentrated emissions by numerous vessels in port, as well as the associated noise and vibrations from ship engines.

Ro-ro vessels and passenger ferries are very suitable candidates for this technology due to their operational profile.

As an early adopter of shore power solutions, Finnlines is following through on its commitment to meeting customer demands for more environmentally conscious services.
