The PORT OF KIEL is increasing its own production of climate-friendly solar energy. At the beginning of August, almost 300 photovoltaic modules were installed at the cruise terminal Ostseekai, on the roof of the 175 m long gangway to the northern berth.
Today´s inauguration of the new shore power facility in Kiel means that Stena Line now have the possibility to connect 14 vessels at seven terminals with on-shore electricity during port stay.
The new mobile radio standard 5G is supposed to enable passenger ferries to cruise partly autonomously between the banks of the fjord and later even in a fully autonomous way.
The call by the cruise vessel “AIDAcara” on Sunday, 7th April, marks the beginning of Kiel’s cruise season 2019.
