Siport21 has developed a methodology to define the sizing and optimize OPS facilities in ports.

The simulator provides an estimate of hourly power demand over the course of a year associated with probability levels. This methodology will help ports to have probability based estimates and their seasonal distribution. It will therefore be essential for decisionmaking, evaluating the cost-benefit of the investment to be made and the total power to be installed. In addition, the tool also shows the results of the decrease in carbon footprint in the port due to the operation of the OPS.
