At the Luneplate, bremenports CEO Robert Howe spoke with Schaefer about the largest nature preserve in the State of Bremen. Another key aspect of the visit was an extensive discussion on hydrogen. bremenports recently submitted a project draft to the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology, and the ways in which it can be implemented are currently being examined. “It’s about rethinking the port of the future. Especially when it comes to traffic, the port can set the bar in many areas,” says Howe. These include the development of ships, shunters or lorries that can be powered with hydrogen, he says.
