electric substation

down on the harbour's pier.  It was finished last month and took almost a year.  Now there are outlets for the ships to plug in and recharge their batteries or just get power.
The timeline relates to when I took the photos so it is an estimate of when the construction was completed.

  2. Indeed let call it progress but I am not sure if the cladding of the natural stone is on its place there in the harbour.

  3. The ships must have very long electric cables all the way to shore when they are out at sea. Sometimes they sail miles away. How do they ensure their cables do not get tied up with other ships' cables? Do you know, Bill?

    God bless.

  4. I like that they used the stone facade, to make it pleasant to look at.

    I like the way it looks, well done. A happy Sunday to you, Bill.

  11. How great to see a way to recharge batteries while at shore...as well as run lights and motors without their own generators. Somehow I've always expected to have that outlet available to ships, but never thought of how it arrived there!

  23. Wow, I didn't think of ships plugging in. But we have plenty of places for cars to recharge, so why not?
