Arctic Directory: Port, BP honored for clean ‘shore power’

On Oct. 7 Everything Long Beach carried an article about the Southern California regional air pollution authorities presenting the Port of Long Beach with an award for becoming the first seaport in the world to construct an oil shipping terminal that offers clean “shore power” to improve air quality.

Port and BP America officials accepted the honor from the South Coast Air Quality Management District at the agency’s 21st annual “Clean Air Awards” ceremony in downtown Los Angeles.

The Port of Long Beach outfitted BP’s oil tanker terminal on Pier T with the ability to allow tankers to safely “plug in” to the landslide electrical grid for all power needs while docked and unloading crude oil. BP America retrofitted two of its Alaska oil tankers to plug in.
