Port of Hamburg heading for improved air quality
Date:2018-08-31 Readers:
THE Port of Hamburg is taking a further step toward improving air quality by testing a new technology developed by Becker Marine Systems.

The innovative technology developed in the city is set to enable large and very large container ships to switch off their auxiliary diesel supplies during lay time and instead draw the power they need for onboard operations from a new kind of mobile generator, reports Singapore's Splash 247.

Becker Marine Systems, Hapag-Lloyd and Hamburger Hafen und Logistik (HHLA) have been testing the new technology as part of a joint pilot project since the start of the year.

Technology supplier Becker Marine Systems developed the mobile power generator, then partnered with Hapag-Lloyd and HHLA for the test phase. The Becker LNG PowerPac supplies eco-friendly power to containerships at the HHLA Container Terminal Burchardkai (CTB). Over the past few weeks, a prototype has been successfully tested multiple times with some of Hapag-Lloyd's giant 20,000 TEU containerships.

The Becker LNG PowerPac is a compact system the size of two 40-foot containers. The unit comprises a gas-powered generator and an LNG tank, which provides the energy for the generator. As soon as a containership docks, a container gantry crane lifts the mobile 1.5 MW power generator from the quay into position at the stern of the ship. Once there, it is connected to the ship's power system and can supply the electricity needed for onboard operations while the ship is docked.

Becker Marine Systems is now in conversation with a variety of European and Chinese ports to sell the systems overseas.
