Shore power - Emission-free cruise operation in the Port of Hamburg
smartPORT TV accompanied Hamburg's First Mayor Dr. Peter Tschentscher on his visit to the shore power plant at the Cruise Center in Altona. Shore power is part of the overall concept for the alternative energy supply of cruise ships in the Port of Hamburg. Since April 2017, the regular operation runs at the Cruise Center Altona. The cruise giants can shut down their own generators to generate electricity and are supplied with zero-emission power from land. The Port of Hamburg is thus a pioneer in the use of alternative energies in maritime shipping.
