The port of Valencia, Spain, will install two electrical substations each with a power of 90 MW that will enable auxiliary engines of ships to be connected to electricity while they are berthed in the port area.
The president of the Port Authority of Valencia, Aurelio Martínez, said that “the substations are the essential piece to be able to electrify the port, an initiative which is part of our real commitment to be a sustainable port in 2030. These two substations are necessary because we want to provide the port with connection points so that all the ships can connect to the grid when they dock at the site.”
The substation in the northern area of the port will be connected to the Aqua substation. The second unit in the southern area is already under construction and will be linked to the La Punta substation.
