  Cleaner air and climate protection in Port of Hamburg

Hamburg’s state government approved a large-scale expansion of shore-based power supply in the Port of Hamburg. This will create the conditions for a shift from shipboard diesel power supply to ecological electric power during lay times. With this expansion, Hamburg is playing a pioneering role in the field of alternative power supply during ships’ lay times in port.

As the first port in Europe, from 2022 the Port of Hamburg will offer shore-based power supply both for cruise liners and mega-containerships. Shore-based power will be available for containerships at a total of eight connection points located at Burchardkai, Europakai and Predohlkai. In addition, availability of shore-based power will be extended to all existing cruise terminals.

A shore-based power supply point will be constructed at HafenCity - CC1 and Steinwerder - CC3. The first such unit for cruise ships in Europe has been located at Altona Cruise Terminal ever since 2016.

Hamburg First Mayor Peter Tschentscher: “Expansion of shore-based power supply units in the port represents a significant and tangible step towards greater climate and environmental protection in Hamburg. Use of regenerative power from these units will totally eliminate existing CO2 and pollutant emissions from vessels during lay times. With today’s decision, we are giving shipowners clarity and planning certainty for the essential refitting of their vessels.

  Alsace Rotterdam Express Increases to Four Round Trips

The Alsace Rotterdam Express between Rotterdam and Strasbourg/Kehl increased its frequency to four round trips a week at the end of September. The container shuttle which was established in 2015 will now call at all deep sea terminals on Maasvlakte.

The train, an initiative from the C3C partnership between Danser Group, Haeger & Schmidt Logistics and Ultra-Brag, started four years ago with two round trips. A third was added in early 2018 and the frequency has now been increased to four a week.

This expansion results in a capacity of some 360 TEU per week in both directions. ‘We are not ruling out further expansion of rail services in the future,’ stated Michel Bot, Marketing & Sales Manager at Danser Group, on behalf of the C3C partners.

Bot: ‘We transport a lot of paper, wine and beer to Rotterdam from the French Alsace and German Baden-Wurttemberg. And a lot of automotive products too. From Rotterdam, just about everything is transported in the other direction. As well as transport solutions by barge, this enables us to offer shipping companies, freight forwarders and direct shippers choice and flexibility.

And reactions are positive. Cargo reaches its destination within 24 hours by train. Transport by water takes an extra one to two days. Clients can make their own choice under the “one-stop-shop” banner. Rail also, of course, offers a good alternative at low water.’
