To achieve the goal of climate neutrality as quickly as possible, it is also necessary to move away from fossil fuels when it comes to port handling equipment. The study “Alternative Drives for Port Handling Equipment” (“Alternative Antriebe für Hafenumschlaggeräte”) commissioned by NOW GmbH has now systematically examined the current CO2 emissions of port handling equipment as well as the availability and technological maturity of alternative drive systems.
The Senator for Science and Ports of the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen is inviting participants to a presentation of the results of the study, the perspectives of both the Central Association of German Seaports (Zentralverband der deutschen Seehäfen) and of one of Bremen’s port stakeholders, as well as a presentation of current funding opportunities, on 31 March 2023 from 10:00 a.m. to approx. 1:00 p.m. The event will take place at Science House (Haus der Wissenschaft) in Bremen.
