"We are building a shore power facility that will supply three cruise vessels with power simultaneously.
Europe Port of Bergen
A shore power facility that can supply three cruise vessels at the same time is estimated to cost around 120 million NOK. Port of Bergen is applying for funding for about 50 million NOK from Enova, a state owned grant scheme, as investment support.
The remaining cost of the investment will be paid for by Port of Bergen and BKK. However over time the industry itself, the owners of the vessels that dock at Port of Bergen, will ultimately pay for the cost of establishing shore power. ■
