Alternative to the cold-ironing or shore-power is to generate
own electricity from the dock-side mounted gen-set engine that is retrofitted with IMET's "DPF-Hydrated EGR" system, an Award Winning technology for marine engines from the Port of Los Angeles.

The Port of Los Angeles DOES NOT have dock side mounted gen-set enginer and the system quoted is not POLA marine engine. This technology was a private company which has since gone bankrupt and to best of my knowledge there was no awards awarded to this technology. As a matter of fact, POLA's investigations found that this particular method was not best suitable for ship to shore power systems.

Cold Ironing is a great concept, but has a long way yet to come before it becomes a legitimate goal in a vessel owners business plan.
