At Port of Los Angeles, Cruise Ships Can Now Plug In for Power

This blog post was updated on October 5, 2018.

Officials at the Port of Los Angeles recently unveiled new environmentally-friendly technology that allows cruise ships to turn off their engines and plug in for power while in port.


The Alternative Marine Power system can provide a total of 40 megawatts of shoreside power and can energize two cruise ships at once.


The system can currently sync up with ships from Princess Cruises, Disney Cruise Line, and Norwegian Cruise Line, making Los Angeles the first port with the ability to provide power to three separate cruise lines.


While similar technology currently exists in San Francisco and San Diego, the World Cruise Center in Los Angeles is the only port in California where two cruise ships can be connected simultaneously.
