In order to achieve maximum yields from the roof surface, it has been decided to use extra powerful 300 watt peak solar panels. Once these solar panels are operating, they will generate enough sustainable energy to supply green electricity to 3,100 households.

In addition, earlier in August the Port of Amsterdam informed that as of 1 August, it will double the maximum ESI discount for vessels that are in the possession of an ESI certificate and use LNG as a fuel.

As of 1 August, the Port will be increasing this incentive by doubling the maximum ESI discount for vessels that are in the possession of an ESI certificate and use LNG for their main engine or auxiliary engine.

The introduction of this discount aims to encouraging the 50,000 seagoing vessels, cruise ships and barges that call on the Port annually to operate as rapidly and efficiently as possible, using the least amount of resources.
