The origin of the name Albia

Albia is the old name of the river Elbe.

The Latin word Albia means “clear water”

The river Elbe, the port of Hamburg, the connection with the City of Hamburg – all this and much more gave the inspiration to name the company “Albia Marine”.

The river Elbe (Albia) has been the lifeline for the City of Hamburg for hundreds of years.

With a total length of 1094 kilometers and a complete area of 148.268 square kilometers, the river Elbe is one of the biggest rivers in Europe.
