“Rethinking the port of the future”

BREMERHAVEN. During a visit to Bremerhaven in March, the Bremen Senator for Climate Protection, Environment, Mobility, Urban Development and Residential Development, Dr. Maike Schaefer, learned about the latest issues of importance to bremenports. “The port is not just an important economic factor for the State of Bremen, but is also an engine when it comes to climate protection and sustainability,” said the Senator. 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.
