ELEMED Program – Killini is a pioneer in the future of shipping
The aim of the Elemed program is to promote the electrification of ships and ports, with the aim of reducing the environmental footprint of shipping.
The program is co-funded by the European Union, conducting studies on the installation of ship infrastructure in three countries (Greece, Cyprus, Slovenia) and in four ports of Koper (Slovenia), Kyllini, Piraeus and Limassol, effectively reducing noise and noise. (Nitrogen Oxides, Floating Particulates, Sulfur Oxides, Carbon Dioxide, etc.), especially in urban areas near ports.
The first ship power supply infrastructure in the Eastern Mediterranean began piloting from the port of Kyllini, with which several ports of PIN have direct connection (Zakynthos, Poros, Sami, Piso Aetos). At the port of Kyllini there is a 500 kVA power plant for ships of 50/60 Hz frequency, with provision for 4 power stations and 1 power station.
The project was inaugurated on December 20, 2018 by the then Minister of Maritime Nektarios Santorini and the coordinator of the program is Lloyd’s Register.
