Becker LNG PowerPac®
During layovers in port the power for container ships is currently being supplied by on-board auxiliary diesel engines using fuel oil (Marine Gas Oil, MGO). By doing so, ships account for the majority of harmful emissions in ports. With Becker LNG PowerPacs® we are creating a modern, environmentally-friendly, safe and economical option for supplying power based on LNG to container ships during layovers in port.
Mobile power solution in port
The compact Becker LNG PowerPac® – the size of two 40-foot high cube containers – intelligently combines a gas-powered generator with an output of 1.5 Megawatts and a LNG tank in a limited amount of space. During the vessel’s layover in port it provides power to the on-board power supply with decisively fewer emissions than standard operation of the ship’s auxiliary engines.

Extendibility of operating hours by positioning a second LNG-Tanktainer on top
Cascadable for up to 3 MW power supply
Simple action – significant immediate effect:
The Becker LNG PowerPac® is a quickly implemented solution with its delivery time of eight months, no required infrastructure investments and has a high impact on port emission reductions.
Once a container ship is moored, the first step is to place the Becker LNG PowerPac® on board via the port terminal’s locally available, standardised loading equipment, such as gantry cranes, ship-to-shore cranes and van carriers. It is positioned on the aft ship/outer ship side of the vessel.
The high flexibility of the Becker LNG PowerPac® allows it to serve multiple mooring places. Due to this flexibility and its integration into standard terminal processes no additional infrastructure investments are necessary.
The Becker LNG PowerPac® weighs 60 tons including the LNG-Tanktainer. If this exceeds the terminal’s weight limits the lift on board can be done in two seperate moves.
The Becker LNG PowerPac® is transported from stand-by position at the terminal to the ship by a straddle carrier.
The LNG-Tanktainer is delivered and connected to the Becker LNG PowerPac®, which is now ready to be moved on board.
The Becker LNG PowerPac® is ready to supply power and is picked up by a gantry crane to be moved on board of the vessel.
The Becker LNG PowerPac® is lowered into position on the aft ship/outer ship side of the vessel.
