The Port of Los Angeles has renewed its agreement with the LA Department of Water & Power, which will supply the port’s shore power facilities for another three-year period.
Two cruise ships will continue to be able to plug in at Berths 91 and 93 simultaneously, according to a spokesperson for the port, who said LA has been providing shorepower for cruise ships since 2011.
Cruise ships that plug in include Princess Cruises’ Coral, Emerald, Island, Ruby and Star Princess, as well as the Norwegian Jewel and Star.
Container and refrigerated cargo vessels are also able to plug in at the LA port.
The port has invested millions of dollars preparing terminals for the shore side power regulations and as of this year has 75 shorepower installations – said to be more than any other port in the world.
