An LNG mobile shore power solution project by Becker Marine Systems has reached a new phase with the first operation of two prototypes units due to take place at HHLA’s container terminal Burchardkai at the Port of Hamburg.

A 24-hour test run of both Becker LNG PowerPac prototypes will start on 20 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.

The Becker LNG PowerPac is a compact unit the size of two 40-foot containers, intelligently combining a gas-powered generator with an output of 1.5MW and an LNG tank in a limited amount of space.

Germany’s Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) has been a project partner during the production process of the Becker LNG PowerPac. As of 5 June, it has released funds for mobile, containerised solutions for shore power.

Becker Marine Systems offers a wide range of alternative energy systems for the marine industry. Hybrid Port Energy was founded by Becker Marine Systems with the objective of supplying environmentally friendly maritime energy and is responsible for the development and sales activities of the Becker LNG PowerPac.
