Shore power coordination

The shore power coordinator monitors developments through the platform and solves any problems relating to shore power.

Strategic objectives

The Flanders Inland Navigation Services Platform pursues the following strategic objectives with regard to shore power:

  • to coordinate initiatives of bargees and waterway managers / port companies to meet the strict needs and obligations laid down by Flemish Parliament Act;

  • to look for solutions which make optimal use of the added value generated by shore power;

  • to develop a joint/coordinated vision on infrastructure (design, management and maintenance);

  • to standardize the provision and payment system;

  • to coordinate the compilation of a composite index map of shore power facilities;

  • to coordinate actions directed at federal policy makers (like consultation on taxation with the federal authorities).
