Alternative Maritime Power Project Underway at POLA

Expanding the use of the world’s first clean electrical power program for container ships at dock, the Port of Los Angeles is beginning construction on a direct wharf plug-in system at Berths 212-216. Considered the “next generation” of the Alternative Maritime Power (AMP) program, ships calling at these berths will not use a barge conduit for connecting ships to shore side electrical power, like the system currently in use at Berth 100 in the port.
