ELectrification of the Eastern MEDiterranean area (use of cold ironing and electricity as a propulsion alternative)

We're here to help


Elemed project prepared the ground for the introduction of cold ironic, electric bunkering and hybrid ships across the Eastern Mediterranean Sea Corridor. It was a co-funded by the European Union project, aiming at studying all matters related to developing cold-ironing infrastructure in Mediterranean Ports. The project involved three member-states with their respective ports, Greece (Port of Piraeus, Port of Killini), Cyprus (Port of Limassol) and Slovenia (Port of Koper). Within elemed project framework the first operational On-Shore Power connection in Eastern Mediterranean region was established at Port of Killini.
