The shipping industry dominates 90% of global trade activities. According to the statistics from International Maritime Organization (IMO) in 2020, the greenhouse gas emissions from global shipping exceeded 1 billion tons, of which carbon dioxide emissions account for 98%. Every year, the carbon emissions of the shipping industry account for nearly 3% of the total global emissions of human activities, making the shipping sector one of the largest carbon emitters.
In an effort to decrease carbon emissions produced by the shipping industry, Goldwind partnered with China COSCO SHIPPING Corporation Limited to build a green port and shipping eco-system. Located at the west of Bohai Bay in Binhai New Area, Tianjin, China, the Tianjin Port is the maritime gateway for Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei and the “Three Norths”, Northeast China, Northwest China and North China. It is also the main port for the Xiong’an New Area and a strategic fulcrum on the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road. A smart energy solution for an integrated power source-grid-load-storage zero-carbon port was adopted for Tianjin Port. In 2021, the world's first smart zero-carbon port was built, marking the successful application of Goldwind's zero-carbon solution to industrial port settings.
100% electricity-driven, 100% green power-backed and 100% self-sufficient
Smart energy solution for integrated power source-grid-load-storage zero-carbon port
Micro-siting for two 4.5MW distributed wind turbines and 1.43MWp distributed PV panels based on local conditions to ensure a reliable renewable energy supply for automated equipment at the port.
Goldwind’s micro-grid technology in line with IEC is used to achieve high levels of renewable energy utilization.
Main power-consuming equipment, transportation tools, and mobile machinery at the port are all deeply electrified. To address this energy consumption Goldwind used advanced monitoring, control technology and big data analysis to improve operational efficiency and energy conservation.
3D engine and IoT are employed as a digital twin system and low code is used to customize a smart energy control platform for the port. The power generation side and the power consumption side are connected to at the port to marry high efficiency and low energy consumption.
