Port development

In cooperation with the municipal authority of Dordrecht and the business community, the Port of Rotterdam Authority has developed Dordrecht Inland Seaport into a highly attractive port for maritime manufacturing, logistics and bulk handling. Including the port basins, Dordrecht Inland Seaport covers an area of 290 hectares. The public space in the port area has been rejuvenated and upgraded. In addition, the number of businesses established in the port has increased and existing firms have made substantial investments in the area. Over the next few years, the Port Authority will focus on optimising the local business climate, building up a clean energy cluster and further developing the area’s social infrastructure.

Optimalisation of Wilhelminahaven

To meet growing demand and ensure that the port is future-proof, plans for the coming period also include the further optimisation of the Wilhelminahaven basin. The Port of Rotterdam Authority will be investing over EUR 3.5 million in the replacement of mooring buoys, the renovation of the jetty and dolphins and a section for push barges. Together, these projects will increase handling capacity, take optimal advantage of the available nautical space and improve safety conditions for all users.

Clean Energy Hub

The Port of Rotterdam Authority plans to work together with the private sector to develop Duivelseiland (a peninsula in Dordrecht Inland Seaport) into a strong and clean energy cluster. This cluster will be geared towards the storage, distribution, production/generation and bunkering/refuelling of clean energy. The development of a dedicated Clean Energy Hub on Duivelseiland is in line with the Port Authority’s policy as manager of the largest port in Europe to play a pioneering role in the European energy transition. In addition, the cluster will contribute to a more sustainable supply chain for companies that are involved in logistics. The Port of Rotterdam Authority would like to invite private sector stakeholders in the ‘clean industry’ chain (involved in generation, conversion, storage, bunkering, servicing and distribution) to think along about how to best give shape to the Clean Energy Hub concept. If you would like to think with us or are considering doing business on Duivelseiland, please contact: Rik Dalmeijer – Area Manager Dordrecht Inland Seaport (RA.Dalmeijer@portofrotterdam.com).
