Port of Rotterdam enters into a unique co-operation with E.ON, Evides, Stedin and Vopak

18th September 2013, Comments 0 comments

An agreement signed by E.ON, Evides, Stedin and Vopak at the end of August aims to creating an 80-hectare ‘Plug & Play area’ in Maasvlakte 2 Port of Rotterdam.

This means they will cooperate to offer basic infrastructure to businesses which want to set up in the Bio-based Cluster planned here. This collaboration is a major step forward for the Port of Rotterdam to grow into an international Bio Port.

The Port of Rotterdam foresees a great future for biofuels, bioenergy and biobased chemicals. Rotterdam consists of more than 5 oil refineries, 45 chemical companies, and several power plants. The port and it's hinterland form a world-class (petro)chemical cluster. Logistics and utilities are widely available and include all transport modes to Europe's main markets.

The port also houses Europe's largest biofuels companies, imports more and more biobased materials, and collaborates with chemical companies on biobased chemicals and materials. Building on the strength of the existing port and industrial cluster, the biobased industry is the way of the future in the Port of Rotterdam. For this we also allocated 80 hectares to accommodate biobased companies in the plans for Maasvlakte 2.
