No Smoking

The PACA region (Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur) has announced on 5 September its intention to eliminate the exhaust of all cruise and ferries calling at the ports of Marseille, Toulon and Nice by investing in shore power.

A budget of EUR 30 million has been allocated under the name “Escales zéro fumée” (no smoke calls). The money will go into shore power systems for the cruise and ferry terminals and to the shipowners.
