The Ro-pax Fior Di Levante will plug into the first shore power facility in Eastern Mediterranean region at a special inauguration ceremony taking place at Killini port on Thursday 20th December 2018 at 10.30.
Though the installation of this green pioneering cold-ironing facility, developed within the European co-funded programme elemed, the port of Killini achieves a decline in air pollution, upgrades port facilities while paving the way for other Greek ports to become emissions-free hubs in the Eastern Mediterranean region.
Along with the opening, Killini Port Authority and elemed partners will host a special event entitled “Eastern Mediterranean achieves reduced environmental footprint at the port of Killini”.

Elemed (Electrification in the Eastern Mediterranean) prepares the ground for the introduction of cold ironing, electric bunkering and hybrid ships across the Eastern Mediterranean Sea corridor, aiming at eliminating emissions & noise in ports and surrounding urban area. It is a co-funded by European Union project, studying all technical, regulatory and financial issues related to the establishment of cold-ironing infrastructure, in four ports (Piraeus, Killini, Lemesos, Koper), involving three countries. Within elemed framework, the first pilot cold-ironing infrastructure in Eastern Mediterranean will be established in Killini Port.
