Shore-based power at the Port of Rotterdam
The Port of Rotterdam is investigating the possibility of installing shore-side power at its ECT and APMT2 terminals. Providing shore-side power to vessels berthing at the Port would allow them to be able to turn off their engines, which would lead to a reduction in CO2 emissions and would improve air quality. In addition to the two terminals concerned by the study, the Port is also looking into the possibility to install shore-based power at the terminals of Vopak and Cruiseport Rotterdam. In total, this could result in a 200,000 tonnes reduction in CO2 emissions by 2030. The ongoing investigation is partly subsidised by EU funds.
