Through this collaboration, partners goal to improve air quality, develop green practices inside the shipping industry and enable climate-neutral transportation.

The main pilot concept will be located on the German inland DeltaPort in Voerde and Wesel, which will be turned into a sustainable port facility under the EcoPort813 project.

The infrastructure will be designed in such a way that not only ships, but also trains and trucks can refuel hydrogen or recharge their batteries in the port. This means that even the so-called last mile can become green and CO2-free. Port of Rotterdam announced.

Port of Rotterdam from its side, will offer its logistics expertise and E.ON its energy solutions for the infrastructure's establishment.

Sustainability should be a decisive location factor for the further development of the port locations of Orsoy, Voerde, Wesel and Emmerich on the Lower Rhine. Together with our customers, we would like to take the path to a climate-friendly future in which inland waterways and rail are used as competitive and clean means of transport.

...Andreas Stolte, Managing Director of DeltaPort Niederrheinhäfen concluded.
