In 2021, we announced our investment at Europoort in the Port of Rotterdam. We have acquired an interest in part of the assets of the Stargate Terminal from Gunvor Group, and we plan to develop more than 20 hectares at the heart of the port.
The site includes a significant waterfront (approximately 500 m) with deep water access, brownfield development opportunities and potential greenfield development sites.
The above blue site outline is for indicative purposes only.
Our ambitious plans include the development of a new multi-purpose seagoing jetty, as well as developing infrastructure for:
- Consolidation of biofuel storage and bio-based feedstocks
- Storage for renewable fuels
- Gas storage
- Gas to chemicals production
- Processes related to recycled plastics and production synthetic fuels
- Green and blue hydrogen production with storage
- Hydrogen carriers such as ammonia
This project aims to become one of the largest low-carbon developments at a world-class industrial hub, with the potential to significantly reduce the carbon footprint of future business in the Port. Alongside a new jetty that we aim to develop and low-carbon commodity infrastructure, we are also looking to become part of the logistics chain needed to import blue and green hydrogen.
The Port of Rotterdam is Europe’s largest ports
With deep-water access and world-class connectivity to inland waterways and pipeline infrastructure. It is ideally placed for this development, which will bring low-carbon technology to one of the world’s great trading hubs.
