The next milestone for the Becker LNG PowerPac® in the Port of Hamburg
05th June 2019: The next important milestone in the development of the Becker LNG PowerPac® is the first operation of two prototypes units of the mobile shore power solution from Becker Marine Systems at HHLA’s container terminal Burchardkai in Hamburg.
In attendance of invited guests of national and international container, ro/ro and ferry ports and shipping companies as well as representatives of Hamburg authorities, a twenty-four-hour test run of both prototypes will start on 20th June. Combined, the two units generate three megawatts of clean energy as shore power supply for ships in port. The results of this 24h test and the following tests will be incorporated into the serial design of the Becker LNG PowerPac®.
During the production process of the Becker LNG PowerPac®, the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) has been an important project partner right from the start. As of 5th June, they have released funds for mobile, containerised solutions for shore power.
