California Cold Ironing


Rotary Frequency Selection California And The Implementation of Cold Ironing

California Cold Ironing is receiving a great deal of interested in ports around the world. Californians breathe the cleanest air since measurements have been recorded. For example the number of first stage alerts in the Los Angeles area has been cut from 200 per year to less than 10 per year today. One reason for this is the aggressive approach they have taken to implementing Cold Ironing into their ports.

Ships in the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach generate more than 4,000 tons of smog-forming nitrogen oxide pollution. The new California Cold Ironing system just at the China Shipping Line terminal eliminates more than 3 tons of nitrogen oxides and  350 pounds of diesel particulate matter for each ship that plugs in. California Cold Ironing system is attracting attention around the world, and more ports are seeing the effects of what cold ironing can do for the environment. Cold Ironing is a method that ships turn off their engines when docking and plugged into the port power. 

California Cold Ironing Sytems is Attracting Attention Around the World.

The Port of Long Beach and British Petroleum have initiated a project to install shore-side electrical power at Berth T-121, and wiring and plugs on two BP tanker.  These tankers will be using California Cold Ironing whenever they call on Long Beach. This is the first step of a master plan to upgrade and implement cold ironing. The Port of Long Beach will have 10 berths when the plan is completed in 2011, it will allow for 381  ships to plugged into shore-power per year.

According the the California Air Resources Board, if ships use cold ironing only  making three or more annual visits to the port, emissions would be reduced by 70 percent. This means about 17 tons of nitrogen oxide and .4 tons of particulate matter per day would be eliminated .


California Cold Ironing are adding more berth so ships can plugged into shore power.
