OLDENBURG/BREMEN/WILHELMSHAVEN. In June, NPorts, bremenports and JadeWeserPort signed up for the ZeroEmission@Berth project. From September onwards, the port partners will be aiming to find additional and alternative measures for fixed shore power systems. The aim is to help reduce emissions while ships are at berth. To achieve consistency across all parts of the industry, the project is to be implemented in conjunction with the shipping companies that use the German seaports. The joint project has been initiated by the North German Seaport Network and will involve cooperation between environmental experts from the nine seaport companies of the five North German coastal states. Other partners include the Hamburg Port Authority, Brunsbüttel Ports, Port of Kiel, NPorts, Rostock Port, Lübeck Port Authority and Seehafen Wismar. The project is supported by the Maritime Cluster Norddeutschland and will run for seven months.
