PLUG: Power Generation During Loading and Unloading

Power Generation During Loading and Unloading (PLUG) is a Specific Targeted Research Project (STREP) in the European Sixth Framework Program.

The subject of this project is development and qualification of a new concept of power exchange interface between transport vessels, using diesel or gas turbine electric propulsion, and harbour terminals. Development of a quick connect/disconnect power interface (“PLUG”) will allow a safe transfer of up to 30 MW between a carrier and harbour terminal.
