The Ro-Pax Fior Di Levante will plug into an onshore power facility on 20 December at the Greek port of Killini.
The cold ironing facility at the port has been supported by the European Elemed (Electrification in the Eastern Mediterranean) initiative. This is intended to prepare the ground for the introduction of cold ironing, electric bunkering and hybrid ships across the Eastern Mediterranean Sea corridor.
The EU co-funded project is studying the technical, regulatory and financial issues related to the establishment of cold-ironing infrastructure in four ports (Piraeus, Killini, Lemesos, Koper), involving three countries.
