Europe sets course for more sustainable Flemish inland navigation

HASSELT – With support from Europe, POM Limburg and De Vlaamse Waterweg NV want to accelerate the sustainability of Flemish inland navigation. A crucial step is the introduction of shore power: by using shore power, docked ships can turn off their polluting diesel engines. This leads to a significant reduction in the use of fossil fuels and local air and water pollution. To achieve this, both Flemish partners are joining forces in the new Interreg project 'Shore Power in European Shipping' (SPIES), with partners from Denmark, the Netherlands, France and Germany also contributing.
