Shipping activities as energy users generate air pollution and Greenhouse Gas emissions. One of the potential mitigation actions that can reduce these emissions is by utilizing the shore connection at the port. The purpose of this study was to obtain a profile of emissions from vessels anchored at the Terminal Teluk Lamong, East Java, Indonesia as well as the potential for reducing emissions and the efficiency of ship fuel costs. The study used mixed method, by analyzing ship visit data to obtain a profile of emissions produced from anchored vessels and the potential of the emission reduction of vessels that have used shore connection facilities, and also were analyzed through in-depth interviews with port operators, shipping companies and regulators. The study shows that CO2 is the highest ship exhaust emission, while air pollution was dominated by NOx, SO2 and CO. Terminal Teluk Lamong, which has just implemented shore connection since January 2019, can accomplish fuel cost efficiency by the average of 92,72%.
