Rotterdam World Gateway set for €500 million terminal expansion

Rotterdam World Gateway set for terminal expansion

Rotterdam World Gateway (RWG) has agreed to a phased expansion of its terminal with shareholders DP World, CMA CGM/Terminal Link, HMM, MOL and the Port of Rotterdam Authority.

The additional berth is an expansion to RWG’s existing terminal based on the same proven concept: completely automated, CO2-neutral, and specialised handling facilities for all modes.

The European Union has also provided a Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) subsidy for the latter.

The total investment is approximately €500 million ($547 million) and initially includes civil works, quay cranes, storage modules with automatic stacking cranes and electrical automatic guided vehicles.

The berth is expected to be operational at the end of the fourth quarter of 2025 with a commercial roll-out in 2026.

Ronald Lugthart, CEO & Chairman of the Board of RWG, said: “With this decision we are taking the next step in the expansion of our activities and we can continue to offer reliable, efficient and flexible handling to our customers and stakeholders.

“We are not only investing in extra capacity, but also in further connectivity in (city) logistics and the hinterland with future‐oriented facilities.

“Together with all parties in the chain, we will continue innovating in how a 24/7 economy can be optimally organised and used in both the Netherlands and the hinterland and thus also give substance to the growth of the Port of Rotterdam.”

In April of this year, Advario, a Dutch-based renewable energy company, announced plans to develop a cutting-edge energy storage terminal in the Port of Rotterdam.

More recently, the Port of Rotterdam Authority commenced construction of the quay in the Amaliahaven, which is scheduled for completion in 2024.
