Esbjerg Brygge 30
The Port of Esbjerg hosted and organized the workshop under the Green Cruise Port project of the EU Interreg BSR Programme 2104 – 2020 in Esbjerg, Denmark, on 6th and 7th June 2018.
The workshop took place at the premises of the company Semco Maritime, and it focused on green bunkering for cruise vessels – more specifically LNG. As the business areas of the Port of Esbjerg differ from those of the other project partners, the Port of Esbjerg presented an introduction to the Port on the first day of the workshop focusing on how the Port of Esbjerg has played an important role in the green transition in Denmark. In fact, the Port of Esbjerg is the largest base port for wind activities in the world, and the Port regard this as a business opportunity within the cruise industry when it comes to linking tourism with being green.
A total of 23 persons representing both project partners and associated partners participated in the workshop throughout the two days. The main focus of the workshop – in addition to the presentation of the Port of Esbjerg - was on the business case for green bunkering of cruise vessels with sustainable fuel options.
The Port of Esbjerg had chosen the company COWI to conduct the analysis, and they also presented the findings on day 2. The analysis and the business case were put into perspective by Mr. Dan-Erik Andersson, COO, Port of Gothenburg, Sweden, who elaborated on how the Port of Gothenburg got started with LNG.
