(Video) Maasvlakte II: Zero-Emissions First


A two-year contract will enable APM Terminals (APMT) Rotterdam to be the first in the world to have a zero-emissions footprint at one of its new terminals – Maasvlakte II.

Taking effect on January 1, 2015, the terminal will be powered by wind-generated technology and supplied by NV Nuron Energy, according to the Journal of Commerce.

The wind-power will make Maasvlakte II completely environmentally sustainable and will begin to receive regular services in February, 2015.

APM Terminals’ Maasvlakte II Managing Director, Frank Tazelaar, said: “We are very proud of our technological advances in making this the world’s first zero-emission terminal operation to improve the port environment and set the industry pace in sustainability.”

APMT claims that its fully-automated terminal is the most technologically advanced container facility in the world.

The terminal has an annual capacity of 2.7 million TEU.
