Shore-side power contributes to sustainable shipping

Ships are able to generate electricity themselves. Once on the quay, diesel engines left running are damaging to the immediate environment. In order to prevent this from happening, Container Terminal Doesburg is connected to the national shore-side power system. The allows skippers to make use of a sustainable and cost-effective power supply.


Container Terminal Doesburg buys the offered power entirely green, harmful emissions are thereby a thing of the past. Additionally, shore-side power prevents noise pollution for both skipper and his surroundings. The skipper can switch the shore-side power on and off via a wireless connection. Power consumption is automatically registered and billed by Container Terminal Doesburg.
