The users must drive the ports’ green solutions

The Danish ports are investing heavily in solutions for digitizing systems for managing their energy and resource consumption in these years. Most industrial ports have objectives to reduce the consumption of electricity, water and heat. The way to this often involves software systems that can record and manage consumption.

“All these efforts have been given extra weight in connection with the government’s goal that we must reduce the emission of CO2 by no less than 70% in 2030. The green goals are both ambitious and concrete and will have even greater significance for how the ports must achieve their objectives within the environment and energy”, says Ulrik Østergaard, CEO and owner of Vikingegaarden A / S. Vikingegaarden A/S has developed a system for monitoring operation and consumption at the ports, ProPower, which is currently used at eight of the country’s commercial ports. Here in the autumn of 2020, several product developments are coming which will help to engage and motivate the ports’ end users in the work of reducing, for example, electricity consumption.

“We launch i.a. an app that both makes it very easy to monitor the development of one’s consumption of electricity and water. The app includes all operating functions if you are, for example, a tenant in one of the port’s properties or have docked with your ship. You can, for example, switch e.g. electricit
