PORT OF ROTTERDAM TO CREATE MAASVLAKTE 2 FOR WIND FARMS AT SEA
The Port of Rotterdam is creating space for an offshore centre for wind energy at sea, decommissioning (the dismantling of oil and gas platforms) and the oil and gas market. To this end, a new port site of up to 70 hectares is being created using the hydraulic filling technique on Maasvlakte 2 in the Prinses Alexiahaven. Definite interest in the new centre is already being shown by businesses. The Port Authority expects the first companies to move in within two years. The creation of Europe’s first offshore centre reflects the Port Authority’s policy of pursuing the growth of Rotterdam’s cluster of businesses in the offshore and maritime sectors, which has developed strongly right from the start. ‘The creation of wind farms at sea is a huge growth market. This requires a specialised port area for the installation and maintenance of the farms, which we would like to provide.
Offshore Center Maasvlakte 2 (OCMV2) will be located in Princess Alexiahaven against the seawall, near the berth of the Pioneering Spirit. It will be a centre where leading businesses work together in the offshore wind, decommissioning and oil and gas markets with activities such as construction, assembly, heavy lift, logistics, mobilisations and demobilisations.
