Our cruise docks

A sustainable cruiseport

The Port of Bergen actively works towards developing a more sustainable and environmentally friendly cruise tourism industry and features Europe's largest shore power facility for cruise ships. This facility allows three ships to connect simultaneously and operate emission-free while in port. The port also imposes restrictions on the number of ships and passengers, capping it at a maximum of four ships and 8,000 cruise passengers per day. Furthermore, the Port of Bergen has together with other Norwegian ports developed the EPI (Environmental Port Index), a system to calculate environmentally differentiated port fees based on the emissions of ships while they are in the port. By rewarding ships with the lowest emissions and thus the lowest environmental impact, the goal is to attract precisely these types of ships. EPI is now implemented by 19 Norwegian ports, as well as the ports in Reykjavik and Lisbon.

Berth reservation

The Port of Bergen will confirm requests for quay reservations if the ship meets one of the following criteria:

For 2024 and 2025, all ships must be Tier 2 compliant. Ships that do not meet these requirements can apply for quay space but must use shore power when docked.

When ordering a quay, the ship's data must be provided, including power type, consumption, location of power hatch (Stb/port), and distance from hatch to aft in meters.

From 2026, the requirement is for all ships to be on shore power.

The Port of Bergen follows international standards for shore power connections:

IEC 80005-3 low voltage (completed in 2024)

IEC 80005-1 high voltage

An EPI score above 45 provides a discount, while below 45 incurs a surcharge.

A 15 percent discount on quay fees for 2024 is granted when connected to power.
