Three teams will compete in the final stage of the Port Equipment Manufacturers’ Association (PEMA) Student Challenge to devise a sustainable and economically competitive solution to reduce port CO2 emissions by drawing on green technology.

Concepts from the University of Hamburg, Blekinge Institute of Technology and Hamburg University of Technology have been chosen for the competition final, which will see the teams present complete proposals to the TOC Europe general assembly on 14 June.

Following finalists’ presentations, the judging panel, comprising industry experts, journalists and prominent industry figures, will review each proposal according to innovation potential, practicability, and academic value with the overall winning team collecting the €1,000 prize money.

The 6th PEMA Student Challenge question was announced in April. With a strong focus on reducing the environmental impact of ports, student teams looked at existing technologies such as shore power and green energy to devise a CO2-reducing solution for a fictional container terminal.

With all qualifying teams having previously participated, this year promises to be an exciting event as the University of Hamburg will face tough competition defending their title of Student Challenge champions.
