Ports & Maritime

The maritime industry is working towards reducing emissions and fighting climate change by setting new goals and complying with the latest rules and regulations.

In ports and the maritime industry, the diesel engines are still commonly used as an energy source when laying on shore, for example when the shore’s grid connection is insufficient. This can be expensive and damaging to the environment. A more sustainable and cost-effective alternative is using batteries or other clean mobile energy systems as an energy source.

Clean energy systems provide a reliable source of energy, produce zero emissions, and can be charged using shore power when available. Incorporating clean energy systems into the maritime industry can lead to cost savings, a reduction in GHG emissions, and a more sustainable and quiet operation.

Some of our projects

Clean mobile shore power on the Maaskade Rotterdam

Free shore power available on the Maaskade in Rotterdam for inland vessels of CEMT Class V and higher that participate in a trial concerning shore power reinforcements with the help of a battery system.

Clean mobile shore power for short sea vessels in the port of Amsterdam.

Shipping company Wilson moored their ship Wilson Goole at VCK Logistics’ Waterland Terminal. The ship received power via SKOON’s battery.

Grid stabilisation services with mobile batteries

As part of the Smart Energy Systems subsidy, Skoon has finished a pilot at Royal Roos in Rotterdam. The purpose of the pilot was to demonstrate the use of flexible and mobile energy assets, in order to perform services on the grid stabilization market.
