Forth Ports' Energy Management

Forth Ports have achieved certification for the ISO 50001 Energy Management Standard, a global benchmark for organisations looking to conserve energy. Using energy efficiently helps organisations conserve resources and tackle climate change. ISO 50001 supports organisations to use energy more efficiently, through the development of an energy management system.

Shore Power at Fraserburgh

Shoreside power, or ‘cold ironing’, is the process of plugging in vessels to shoreside electricity sources allowing ships to turn their auxiliary engines off while at berth. By turning their engines off, and thus cutting emissions, shore connections can support considerable emissions reductions in ports – of both air pollutants and noise. It can also help vessels save money on fuel.
