North Sea Port has become a minority shareholder in Pipelink, currently a wholly owned subsidiary of Port of Antwerp-Bruges. Pipelink owns and manages an asset base of 750 kilometres of pipelines in Belgium.

This new partnership will develop and build local, national and international pipeline projects – essential steps forward in the modal shift and energy transition.

Furthermore, Pipelink’s ambition is to develop pipeline networks for the transport of (green) hydrogen carriers such as ammonia, methane and methanol.

Jacques Vandermeiren, chairman of Pipelink’s executive board and CEO of the Port of Antwerp-Bruges says: ‘The fact that North Sea Port is now also part of Pipelink will only accelerate this transition and the construction of the necessary infrastructure.’

‘Our participation in Pipelink is yet another great example of cooperation between ports, and with companies. This allows us to help determine the management and development of the CO2 pipelines in our port area and put opportunities for port customers first,’ adds Daan Schalck, CEO North Sea Port.
