Wat is Onshore Power Supply?

Onshore power supply (OPS) is the term used to indicate that a ship makes use of a connection to the shore power network. In principle, sailing ships use their own generators to generate electricity. However, running the diesel engines in the port is unnecessarily harmful to the environment. It mainly causes emissions of CO2, NOx and PM10 particles.
