COSCO SHIPPING propels Hamburg HHLA's shore power

COSCO SHIPPING Taurus was the first vessel to use shore power during a successful ship integration test at the Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA) Container Terminal Tollerort in Hamburg, Germany.

COSCO SHIPPING Taurus is outfitted with integrated shore power supply components.

The project partners HPA, Siemens, COSCO SHIPPING, and HHLA have now successfully tested the system and procedure for Hamburg.

Mingfeng Wang, President COSCO SHIPPING (Europe) GmbH, said: “For 40 years, the shipping company COSCO SHIPPING has been linked to the Tollerort terminal through a successful business relationship.

“With our recent vessels, which are all already equipped with integrated technical components for shore power supply, and shore power finally becoming available at CTT, COSCO SHIPPING and HHLA are on our way to achieving carbon neutrality.”

Angela Titzrath, Chairwoman of HHLA’s Executive Board, stated: “Shore-side power stations at HHLA’s terminals in Hamburg are an important contribution towards the decarbonisation of the port and the logistics chain.

“We are pleased that the shore-side power stations at our terminals have been established, making it possible to reliably supply shore-side electricity to our customers’ ships equipped for that technology. This makes the Port of Hamburg a pioneer within Europe.”

In September, COSCO SHIPPING Energy Transportation (COSCO) and COSCO SHIPPING Bulk (COSCO Bulk) joined the Global Shipping Business Network GSBN consortium and issued the first electronic bills of lading (eBL) for energy and bulk shipments.
