The next important milestone in the development of the Becker LNG PowerPac® is the first operation of two
prototypes units of the mobile shore power solution from Becker Marine Systems at HHLA’s container terminal
Burchardkai in Hamburg.
In attendance of invited guests of national and international container, ro/ro and ferry ports and shipping
companies as well as representatives of Hamburg authorities, a twenty-four-hour test run of both prototypes
will start on 20th June. Combined, the two units generate three megawatts of clean energy as shore power
supply for ships in port. The results of this 24h test and the following tests will be incorporated into the serial
design of the Becker LNG PowerPac®.
During the production process of the Becker LNG PowerPac®, the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital
Infrastructure (BMVI) has been an important project partner right from the start. As of 5th June, they have
released funds for mobile, containerised solutions for shore power.
