Final Report - PLUG (Power generation during loading and unloading)

Project ID: 31477
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV


The subject of this project is the development and qualification of a new concept of power exchange interface between transport vessels, using diesel or gas turbine electric propulsion, and harbour terminals. Development of a quick connect / disconnect power interface (PLUG) will allow a safe transfer of up to 30 MW between a carrier and harbour terminal.

In this their executive summary they detail the progress made towards a demonstrator model and stress that the consortium requested to stop the activities before starting the detailed engineering and test of the demonstrator, due to time constraint linked to demonstration project postponement and evolution, requiring market reassessment and industrial future policy investigations.
