Shore power

We are currently in the process of installing shore power at our Port, the first Scottish port to provide it for customers working in the offshore energy sector.

The project is called Plug Montrose and is a 50/50 joint venture set up between Montrose Port Authority and Plug Shore Power Ltd where an electricity supply is given to vessels at berth, allowing them to switch off their engines and reduce emissions.
