The German port of Kiel has installed an emission-free onshore energy supply at its Norwegenkai pier. The new facility will provide Color Line’s cruise ferries with electric power on their daily trips between the German city and Oslo, Norway. “Together we are making an important contribution to keeping the air clean,” said Daniel Günther, Minister-President of the state of Schleswig-Holstein. “By using onshore power, we are reducing the emission of harmful substances and greenhouse gases while ships are berthed in the port to zero. The state of Schleswig-Holstein supports this trend-setting project and will encourage further facilities of this type.” The Norwegenkai facility, built by Siemens, cost around US$1.4 million, of which around US$450,000 was funded by Schleswig-Holstein. “In future we want to be in a position to use shore-based electricity to cover 60% of the power requirements of ships calling at Kiel,” said Dirk Claus, managing director of the Port of Kiel.

During 2018, Haifa Port welcomed around 120,000 passengers. In 2019, it is expecting double this figure. This dramatic growth is on par with the overall tourism boom in Israel due in large part to daily flights from many destinations in Europe, North America and Asia. That said, according to Zohar Rom, Haifa Port spokesman and cruise manager, the number of tourists arriving by sea is still falling far short of the port’s potential.
