Shore Power Project completed - Cruise ships can now be powered by electricity at the Port of Montréal
The Montréal Port Authority (MPA) is pleased to announce that its shore power project has been completed and that vessels docking at the Port of Montréal's new cruise terminal can now be powered by electricity.

It leads to better ambient air quality by enabling ships to turn off their engines and connect to the power grid for the power they need while they are docked.
