Blackbird (Federlogistica): need to speed up the installation cold ironing systems in ports

Indispensable also - he specified - a unique direction national to launch effective and concrete projects

For the president of Federlogistica it is necessary speed up the installation on port docks of systems that allow ships to connect to the shore-based electricity grid and, for this to happen, a direction is indispensable single national to launch effective and concrete projects. "The electrification of port docks - he explained Luigi Merlo - represents today the only realistic answer and concrete with respect to the environmental and port energy theme giving implementation of the guidelines at Community level' and also, according to the president of Federlogistica, "that of the so-called cold ironing is an obligatory choice: ministries competent - highlighted Merlo - have allocated the resources necessary to build the infrastructure, but they risk suffering very heavy delays with a leopard-spotted scenario, characterized in some cases by the absence of projects, or projects already outdated not able to respond to the real needs'.

'Almost all ships from cruise, an increasing share of ferries and many cargo ships - has observed Merlo - in port they could already connect today to the electrical network of the docks as they are already prepared. But clear answers and indications are needed that only a direction the only national one even among the competent ministries is able to today to unlock: that is, we need a structure at the head of the Ministry of Sustainable Infrastructure and Mobility able to prepare adequate projects, ensure timing of procurement and, through a structural relationship with suppliers of energy, ensuring adequate supplies to energy needs for each port'.

The president of Federlogistica has specified that answers equally rapid will have to be provided in terms of costs of these "supplies" of energy today - he underlined - too high for ships and incomparable compared to higher costs lows resulting from the use, as it happens today, of fuel traditional.
