The award is given to Quebec projects that demonstrate a reduction in the environmental impacts of transportation.

Schneider Electric’s Shore Power solution contributed to the Port’s reduction of 2,800 tons of greenhouse gas emissions annually. Shore Power allows docked vessels to connect to the electrical grid and shut down their diesel engines, significantly reducing the air pollution the vessels produce. 

Based on Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure platform, an Internet of Things-enabled architecture, Shore Power n relies on intelligent Schneider Electric devices, including sophisticated substation automation relays and power monitoring instruments. Through Shore Power, ports can track a ship’s operational data and energy consumption, trace system performance and events, collect billing information, and rely on a user-friendly touchscreen for remote monitoring. 

“This project makes it possible to refuel vessels with cleaner energy during their stay at the Port of Montreal and it will lead to a reduction of 2,800 tonnes per year of greenhouse gas emissions, equivalent to the GHGs emitted by 700 motor vehicles,” said Daniel Dagenais, Vice-president, Operations at the Port of Montreal. “Such recognition enables the Port of Montreal to strengthen its positioning as a sustainable port and a leader in green navigation.”

The Port of Montreal is Canada’s second largest, handles 35 million tons of cargo annually, and receives thousands of cruise ship visitors. Schneider Electric’s Shore Power solution is part of the port’s rehabilitation and modernization of the Alexander Pier and its cruise terminal.
