Marseille Fos boosts drive towards cutting air emissions

Among a string of new eco-friendly initiatives, the Marseille Fos port authority is to spend €20 million over the next six years to extend shoreside electrical connections for berthed vessels to every ferry, cruiseship and repair quay within the Marseille eastern harbour.

Already available on the Corsica ferry quays, the network will be expanded in two phases to cover North Africa ferry quays and the shiprepair hub by 2022 and the cruise terminal between 2022 and 2025.

The zero-emissions investment - backed by national and regional government – recognises the need to maintain the port’s value to the economy while improving the city’s waterside air quality.  Marseille Fos CEO Hervé Martel commented: “We are convinced that ecological transition is the springboard to economic growth.  That’s why we are investing heavily to become the Mediterranean’s first 100% electric port by 2025.
