Port of Rotterdam Thinks Big with Offshore Center Rotterdam (Expertise Hub VIDEO)

Land reclamation works on the site of the Offshore Center Rotterdam were started without any client commitment because the port believes the center will be in demand with the offshore wind industry, Joost Eenhuizen, Business Manager, Maritime & Offshore Industry at the Port of Rotterdam, said.

Several companies have shown interest in establishing their presence at the center already, and the discussions are ongoing, according to Eenhuizen.

The construction of the quay wall at the site needs to be backed by client commitment, and is currently scheduled to start by mid-2018.

Eenhuizen said that the Offshore Center Rotterdam was designed based on input received from the industry and that the center is being built to be future-proof and able to handle the ever-increasing vessels and components used in the offshore wind industry.
