Hybrid Port Energy – clean & mobile shore power

Hybrid Port Energy (HPE) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Becker Marine Systems. HPE delivers and operates shore power technology such as the LNG Hybrid Barge Hummel which supplies 7.5 MW of clean energy to the AIDAsol cruise ship at the port of Hamburg.

Future HPE barges will be able to supply up to 14 MW to cruise ships or port-based industry. In order to provide fl exible and low emission shore power to container ships as well, as a pilot project at the port of Hamburg, mobile LNG PowerPac® units will be put into operation starting in 2017.

LNG Hybrid Barge

Clean energy for cruise ships at port

Becker Marine Systems developed the advanced LNG Hybrid Barge, an innovative solution for improving air quality at harbour cities by reducing emissions from cruise ships at port. The LNG Hybrid Barge produces significantly lower emissions than the diesel engines used to generate power on board cruise ships.

The LNG Hybrid Barge has been shown to reduce CO2 emissions by 20% and NOX by 80% with no particulates or sulfur emissions whatsoever. Designed as a flexible and mobile solution, the barge supplies power to cruise ships during the summer season and is able to operate as a floating power and heat plant in the winter.

Classified as a seagoing vessel, the world’s first LNG Hybrid Barge in operation at the port of Hamburg is 76.0 m long, 11.4 m wide with a draught of 2.5 m. It is equipped with modular, silently operating 7.5 MW LNG GenSet power plants fuelled by two 17 t LNG containers.
Advantages of the LNG Hybrid Barge:

  • Cold ironing customised for cruise ships
  • Significant reduction of harmful emissions
  • Silent operation
  • Guaranteed independent power supply
  • 100% maritime solution
  • In line with energy laws –
    no state taxes, grid fees etc.
  • Mobility and flexibility –
    multi-customer concept
