The Port of Rotterdam and the Municipality of Rotterdam are working together on the joint rollout of shore-based power for sea-going vessels in Rotterdam. By 2030, they are hoping to have a significant share of sea-going vessels to ‘plug in’ once they have moored along one of the port’s quays. Over the next five years, they will initiate a series of projects intended to accelerate and scale up the adoption of shore-based power. Depending on the experiences gained in these projects, the municipality and the port authority may adapt their targets in this area in 2025. This programme is expected to require a total investment of some €125 million. The majority of this budget will be contributed by the companies involved, the municipality and the port authority. Another €50 million will need to be covered by public funding.
