The Port of Rotterdam signs a MoU with the Port of Singapore to create Green and Digital Corridor
In line with its goal to be climate neutral by 2050, the Port of Rotterdam Authority wants to establish the world’s longest Green and Digital Corridor for sustainable shipping.
In August, the Port signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) to enable sustainable vessels to sail on the route by 2027. The MoU will bring together shippers, fuel suppliers and other companies to work towards developing and scaling up green and digital solutions for wider adoption.
While sustainable alternatives such as biofuels, including biogases, are already available, other alternatives such as synthetic methane, hydrogen, and hydrogen-based fuels including ammonia and methanol are under development for future deployment. The MoU also has the objective of creating a digital trade lane where relevant data, electronic documentation and standards are shared, in order to improve supply chain resilience.
