Alternative Fuel Implementation in IgOumenitsa Port


The main scope of ALFION is to transform Igoumenitsa port into an energy hub of the Adriatic-Ionian Sea, providing sustainable solutions based on the requirements of the port’s marine and vehicle traffic.

The Action aims to contribute to the fulfilment of three key needs:

  1. Significant upgrade of the port infrastructure that will increase the port’s power management efficiency and materialise the port’s plan to offer on-shore power supply to vessels and construct charging stations for vehicles.
  2. Deployment of Renewable Energy Sources inside and in the broader area of the port so that significant portions of energy required by the port is provided by its own resources and will allow the port to efficiently manage and offer electric power to the grid.
  3. Provision of green electric energy to ships at berth via ship-to-shore power interconnections and to road vehicles via recharging power stations, reducing ship emissions and noise of their auxiliary engines (electric generators) and the overall environmental footprint of transport activities in the port area.
