Green shipping pays off. Vessels with particularly safe and eco-friendly features now pay less harbour dues in Hamburg than conventional ships. Oil tanker with a green award are granted a three per cent reduction. As the first port of the Northern range, Hamburg also grants a 15 per cent discount to vessel powered by Liquefied
Natural Gas (LNG). The calculation of the reduced harbour dues is based on the Environmental Ship Index (ESI), currently listing more than 2,000 ships. The discounts are effective: every tenth vessel entering the Port of Hamburg meanwhile meets the requirements for the environmental bonus.
