Romanian port switches to electric transport and use of renewable energy

In order to reduce the amount of harmful emissions into the atmosphere, the management of the largest port in Romania has decided to use alternative energy sources and a complete transition to electric transport.

In particular, all transport used in the port of Constanta will be switched to the use of environmentally friendly renewable energy sources such as electricity, methanol and hydrogen.

A spokesman for the Black Sea Port said the company is starting to work closely with green energy partners and preparing to upgrade its grids to improve energy efficiency.

The ports located in Romania, Barcelona and the Netherlands are partners and united by one common Pioneer project, the aim of which is to unite companies to jointly reduce emissions in the atmosphere in accordance with the approved European Green Pact to achieve zero greenhouse gas emissions. The project has already received a grant in the amount of 25 million euros for the implementation of this goal.
