Closer cooperation between the German North Sea ports is possible. This was one of the outcomes of the first discussion session of the North German seaports in Berlin. More than 100 attendees followed the stimulating discussions chaired by Oliver Detje, Publishing Director at DVV Media Group.

For one year now, the marine garbage collector “Seabin” installed by bremenports has been busy fishing up to four kilos of waste a day from the water in Kaiserhafen. “Seabin II” has now been assembled and lowered into the water in Fischereihafen.

Bremerhaven and the Outer Weser region do not yet have any nautical terminal coordination or comparable smart solutions. This is proving to be a potential competitive disadvantage in view of the competition among European ports.

After a longer break due to the pandemic, bremenports is again offering three excursions to the Luneplate in 2022. As a result of the compensation measures, the Luneplate has developed into an important habitat for animals and plants.
