“Exploit port’s potential for energy transformation”

BREMEN/BREMERHAVEN. At the press conference in February to present the port’s annual figures, bremenports’ managing director Robert Howe looked back on an exciting and busy 2021: “There has been a wealth of unusual topics that challenged our team in more ways than one. I am exceedingly pleased that we can state: bremenports ended 2021 successfully (see cargo handling figures on previous page). Howe was also confident for the year ahead: “Thanks to numerous political decisions taken, our project list is long and varied.” Besides structural retrofits to the port infrastructure, new challenges need to be overcome. “Bremerhaven still has opportunities to play an active part in the energy transition and to benefit from it too. In this respect, we need to make the most of every opportunity, in order to exploit the port’s manifold potential.” According to the manager: “The Bremen Ports will make a positive contribution in overcoming the climate crisis”.
