The project aims to draw up a Master Plan for the supply of electricity to ships berthed in Spanish ports. OPS Master Plan for Spanish Ports is part of the National Action Framework for the development of infrastructures for the use of alternative fuels in the transport sector: this in compliance with article 13 of Directive 2014/94 / EU.
During its execution, several pilot cases will be carried out, highlighting the provision of electrical equipment in docks and ports of general interest, and the adaptation of the ships that dock there. In addition, technical studies will be carried out in order to identify the barriers that currently exist for the implementation of this new environmentally friendly technology.
