As partners of “Sea Li-ion”, we are stepping up to the challenge to address the knowledge gaps that still remain when it comes to battery use for ship propulsion. We will fill those gaps with facts, figures, and solutions to ensure that the electric future that we all dream about can become a reality.

SEEHAFEN KIEL GmbH & Co. KG (”Port of Kiel”)

The Port of Kiel is one of the most versatile ports in the Baltic Sea region and recognized as a port of the comprehensive TEN-T network. While general and bulk cargoes have a primarily local and regional relevance, approx. 80% of the seaport’s annual turnover is ferry traffic. Consequently, intermodal transport plays a significant role for the seaport Kiel. Furthermore, Kiel benefits from its location at the entrance to the world’s most frequented artificial waterway, the Kiel Canal, making it an important intermodal hub of Northern Germany. Through its “Blue Port Kiel” concept4, the port strives to contribute to mitigating climate change by energy and resource efficiency.



Germanischer Lloyd (GL) was founded in Hamburg in 1867, out of an urge to achieve transparency. As an independent classification society, GL was created to evaluate the quality of ships and deliver the results to shipowners, merchants, and insurers. The background of the Norwegian branch of Det Norske Veritas (DNV) is similar. The two classification societies merged in 2013. DNV GL is now the leading provider of risk management and quality assurance services to the maritime and energy industries, active in more than 100 countries. DNV GL’s ability to advise on tomorrow’s energy infrastructure in addition to its expertise in creating technical standards for the safety of the world’s shipping fleet makes it a key participant of this Action. This knowledge will form an important link between the maritime and the electricity sectors.
