Pier 66 Shore Power Project Construction Funding

            Pier 66 Bell Street Cruise Terminal
•  Commissioned in 1999
•  Single berth facility and home port to
Norwegian and Oceania vessels
•  Upgraded to accommodate newest NCL
vessels in 2018
•  Recent P66 Interior Modernization
further enhanced areas jointly used by
Cruise and the International Conf. Center
•  Contributes to significant jobs and
economic benefits to the region: 5,500
jobs and nearly $900M in total business
revenue each typical cruise season


    Shore Power is a Key Environmental Strategy
Maritime Climate and Air Action Plan:
•   Implement the Seattle Waterfront Clean
Energy Strategy
•   Install cruise shore power at Pier 66 by
2024, 6 years ahead of the Northwest Ports
Clean Air Strategy goal
•  Work with cruise lines to make 100% of
homeport calls shore power-capable
and plug in by 2030, if not before
•  Incorporate sustainability best practices
into leases and agreements


      Shore Power Environmental Benefits and Successes
•   93 percent of electricity in Seattle comes from low carbon,
low-cost sources, like hydroelectricity
•   Ships that use Seattle’s clean electricity instead of fossil fuels
at berth reduce CO2 and air pollutants
–  In 2019 shore power use reduced about 2,900 metric tonnes of CO2
–  In 2021 shore power use reduced about 1,700 metric tonnes of CO2
–  In 2022 shore power use reduced about 2,200 metric tonnes of CO2
•   Cruise lines are demonstrating commitment to use shore
power at Terminal 91 and connection rates by equipped calls
increase year-over-year:
100%                                    89%
80%                     62%
53 %
2017          2018          2019          2020          2021
•   At Pier 66, many ships are already shore power-equipped and
expected to connect once a connection is available

        Pier 66 Shore Power Project Components
Four key segments
•  Segments 1 & 2: Landside infrastructure
at Terminal 46. Cost sharing with Seattle
City Light on Segment 1.
•  Segment 3: Approximately 1-mile
submersible cable in Elliott Bay
•  Segment 4: Shore power equipment and
infrastructure on Pier 66. Two shore
power connection points with cable
management system to offer connection


                      Project Status
•  Pre-Procurements executed for Submarine Cable and Electrical Equipment
•  90% design completed to accommodate alternate feeder source
•  Permit review underway, approval expected Q1 2023
