Green Cruise Port Project, a partnership of Hamburg Port Authority, Cruise Gate Hamburg as well as other port authorities, has been awarded with the silver prize of Baltic Clean Maritime Award.
The Green Cruise Port Project, which is a partnership of Hamburg Port Authority (Lead Partner), Cruise Gate Hamburg as well as other port authorities from around the Baltic Sea and neighboring North Sea, has been awarded with the silver prize of Baltic Clean Maritime Award (BCMA) in the category “Infrastucture”. The award ceremony was hosted by the annual forum of the „European Union Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (EUSBSR)“ in Berlin, June 15th. Around 1000 participants at the conference discussed strategies for the Baltic Sea Region and neighbouring North Sea.
Sacha Rougier, MD of Cruise Gate Hamburg: “From a very early stage we have provided our partners and cruise lines with the possibility of alternative energy supply at all of our three terminals – and hereby have gained important experience. Keeping up the dialogue with all cruise ports plays a pivotal role for the next generation of cruise ships if we want to provide a reliable network of ports that will guarantee alternative energy supply to cruise ships along the different itineraries. The exchange of ideas and strategies in the context of this pioneering initiative has significantly helped in reaching this aim.”
The partners of Green Cruise Port worked together for three years to make the Baltic Sea Region more innovative, more sustainable and better connected. Within the project port authorities cooperate with terminal operators, cruise lines, research institutions, cruise associations, NGOs as well as policy stakeholders from local, regional and national level.
