The port of Hamburg gives a discount
       to 5 types of Green Award certified ships

The Hamburg Port Authority’s (HPA) dedication to pursuing the highest standards of safety, quality and environmental protection led them to joining the Green Award scheme as an incentive provider for sea-going ships. From 2014 oil, product and chemical tankers, LNG and, after a launch of the certification program later this year, LPG carriers, that hold the Green Award certificate are eligible for a 3% reduction in port fees when calling at the port of Hamburg.

The port of Hamburg has an active position in promoting safety and environmental consciousness. It carefully chooses options to stimulate ship owners and managers for going above the minimum required legal standards through giving benefits to vessels that are proven to operate on the highest level. From the 1st of January, 2014, the port recognises the Green Award certificate as a proof of such and awards Green Award certificate holders with an incentive. The reduction of 3% in port fees will be given to crude oil, product and chemical tankers and LNG carriers of any size that have been assessed and certified by the Green Award foundation. In order to ensure a better environmental impact, the port of Hamburg will also award Green Award certified LPG carriers as soon as the certification program for this ship type, which is now in development, has been launched.
