As the end of 2023, almost all the inland river container vessels, ro-ro vessels, river-sea direct transportation vessels and sea to river transportation vessels, inland bulk carriers and multi-purpose vessels above 2,000 dwt will complete shore side power transformation, during 2024 and 2025, inland bulk carriers and multi-purpose vessels between 1,000 dwt and 2,000 dwt will finish shore side power transformation.
The shore side power promotion is an important action of China to reduce carbon emission and develop green shipping and ports.
