The Port of Helsinki’s price list for 2021 has been published. The COVID-19 pandemic has increased operating costs, but the Port of Helsinki has decided to keep the prices unchanged for the most part in order to do its part in ensuring that operations will recover after the pandemic.
The Port of Helsinki will increase the waste management fee for passenger ships, but the waste fee will cover more ship-generated waste than before. The aim is to keep the overall price level unchanged.
The Port of Helsinki will increase the waste management fee for passenger ships, but in the future it will receive all normal waste generated aboard ships for the fee, whereas previously the amount of waste covered by the waste management fee was limited. The objective is to keep the overall price level the same.
The RoPax ferries operating in liner traffic are all exempt from the waste management fee and take care of their waste management together with their contractual partners, which means that in practice the structural change in the waste management fee concerns international cruise ships.
Efforts to spur emissions reductions continue
The Port of Helsinki will continue to develop its operations in the future to become the most functional port in the world and a forerunner in sustainable development, in accordance with its strategy. Another fixed part of these objectives is that the Port will increase the maximum amount of the environmental discounts it will grant on vessel charges next year from six to seven per cent.
