Denmark: APM Terminals to Buy Power from Offshore Wind Farm

Denmark: APM Terminals to Buy Power from Offshore Wind Farm

Denmark’s largest port operator, APM Terminals Cargo Service has announced a partnership with DONG Energy, a leading energy provider, to reduce the port operator’s energy consumption and CO2 emissions.

An expected reduction in energy consumption through improved lighting and electricity usage will cut APM Terminals CO2 emissions by 10% annually.

Equally important, APM Terminals Cargo Service will purchase green energy produced from offshore wind farms to drive operations in Denmark’s busiest container port on the waterfront of the city of Aarhus.

Managing Director Johan Pedersson Uggla of APM Terminals Cargo Service describes the new partnership as a natural extension of their ongoing activities:

”As a leading port operator, APM Terminals Aarhus also has an ambition to improve our environmental performance. This partnership reflects our sustainability plan to reduce energy consumption and drive CO2 reductions.”

Other initiatives include fuel efficiency improvements in straddle carriers and reach stacker equipment.

DONG Energy’s Executive Vice President, Lars Clausen added ”Competition is very tough when it comes to being the preferred energy supplier for a large and renowned company such as APM Terminals. So we are proud that we succeeded in establishing a strategically important relationship by offering an attractive customer value proposition and strong competencies”.

APM Terminals, The Hague-based port operator, recently issued its global Sustainability Report for 2011, documenting a reduction in CO2 emissions per container (TEU) lifted of 16.5 pct. from 2009-2011. The global target is a 25% reduction of CO2 emissions per TEU by 2020 from a 2009 baseline.
