MAGPIE (sMArt Green Ports as Integrated Efficient multimodal hubs) wants to make a breakthrough in the supply and use of green energy carriers in transportation from, to and within ports.
s Reyer Will, Project Manager of the European MAGPIE project, explains, new technology is being developed to make transportation more sustainable and to monitor it.
With a total of 40 companies, knowledge institutions and other ports, we are developing 10 demonstration projects
These projects are aimed at four energy carriers that have a future:
- Green hydrogen
MAGPIE is also looking at the logistics and the electricity network that goes with them. In addition to these demos, the MAGPIE project also provides smart tools, with the ultimate goal being a roadmap for emission-free and fully digitalised ports by 2050.
In fact, in May last year, the consortium received almost a 25-million subsidy from the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme.
On 1 October, the five-year project officially got underway and all teams were formed and formalised.
On 10 March this year, the kick-off event takes place in Rotterdam.
