Port Charlottetown

Meeting Objectives

We would like to meet with other ports/companies to share and learn of solutions to challenges in the following areas:

  • Land reclamation techniques - to speed the unloading of shipments.
  • Shore power – to support cruise industry - small as well as large vessels.

  • Dust mitigation strategies.
  • Shore erosion – strategies to mitigate/adapt to effects of climate change.
  • Scheduling efficiencies.
  • Storage space - the Charlottetown Port offers storage space.
  • Environmental sustainability – baseline assessments for harbors (how to collect data)
  • Battery storage technologies
  • Clean energy
  • Port decarbonization
