Carnival opens solar energy park at Amber Cove port

Carnival opens solar energy park at Amber Cove port

Wednesday, 13 Mar, 2024 0

Carnival Corp this week unveiled a new solar park at its Amber Cove Cruise Center in the Dominican Republic.

The park’s more than 1,800 solar energy panels will supply 80% the port’s energy consumption.

Carnival Corp, Carnival Cruise Line and Amber Cove Cruise Center marked the opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony attended by government, industry and community leaders.

Also present was Joel Santos, minister of the presidency of the Dominican Republic, and Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.

“We also take our environmental stewardship here and everywhere we visit very seriously,” said Duffy.

“With this new solar energy park in Amber Cove, we are furthering our commitment to sustainability at our destinations.”

The shift to renewable solar energy will replace most of the port’s current energy sources and reduce its reliance on fossil fuels.

In total, the solar park is expected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 1,000 tons per year.

This is the equivalent to planting more than 30,000 trees.

Located on Dominican Republic’s north coast just outside the historical town of Puerto Plata, Amber Cove Cruise Center is one of eight port destinations and islands owned and operated by Carnival Corp.

The 25-acre port features restaurants, shops, bars, pools, a zipline, waterfront and hilltop cabanas.

Amber Cove also provides many shore excursion options, such as snorkeling and a waterfall adventure.

Four of the company’s cruise lines – Carnival Cruise Line, Costa Cruises, Holland America Line and Princess Cruises regularly visit the cruise port, which celebrated one million arriving guests last December.

This accounted for more than half of all cruise guest visits to the Dominican Republic in 2023.
