The ports of Bremen and Bremerhaven have consistently pursued their sustainability strategy entitled “greenports”. For us, sustainability consists of developments that are economically, environmentally and socially aware in equal measure and thus ensure the future viability of the ports. By implementing the greenports strategy, we wish to promote sustainability in port management, in the port area as well as in the port industry and logistics. The provision of an effective and future-proof infrastructure for business and society requires the early detection of negative and positive factors and proper consideration of them in our business activities. Operational and location risks are just as important as opportunities.
Until 2025, bremenports plans to renew its fleet. A central aspect is the reduction of pollutants and economic operation. The key project is the construction of a LNG-powered hopper barge. This will be the first LNG-powered barge in a European seaport and the first German LNG inland-vessel. With a LNG filling station (from 2016 on) and already existing preliminary regulations for LNG bunkering Bremen’s ports are LNG-ready, today.
