Stena Line has announced that two of its vessels will connect to shore power while at berth in the Port of Trelleborg, Sweden.
- The M/S Skåne and M/S Mecklenburg-Vorpommern will connect to the electricity grid once they dock at the Swedish port to cut their emissions.
- According to Stena Line, the objective is to have 25% of the ports they use to have an electrical connection by 2020 and 75% by 2030.
- Stena Line has four out of its six ports in Sweden connected to the local electricity while 17% of its ports throughout its route network are connected. In 2016 the electrical connections in port contributed to a reduction in CO2 emissions of 12,500 tonnes.
