On February 2nd COSCO Shipping Lines (Canada) Inc. participated in the commissioning test of the shore power installation at DP World’s Fairview Terminal in the Port of Prince Rupert.  The CSCL Summer operated off the shore power system for the 24-hour test and appears to have drawn about 27805 kWh (27.805mWh), averaging 1.183MW per hour.  The Port of Prince Rupert thanks all those on the commissioning team and their ability to adapt to various restrictions in place. The team spanned the continent from Prince Rupert to Vancouver to North Carolina, and includes the team at DP World and crew of the CSCL Summer.  Other organizations that participated in the project include BC Hydro, Moffat & Nicol, SEL Schweitzer, Magna IV, Pacific Northwest Electric, Crown, and Schneider Electric. Funding for the project came from the Environment and Climate Change Canada’s Low Carbon Challenge Fund and Climate Smart.  Full operation of shore power is expected to start later this year or early 2022.
