Rotterdam World Gateway B.V. (RWG) has announced that it will invest as the first European deep-sea terminal operator in shore-based power for all vessels.

The first berths are expected to be equipped with shore-based power from 2026 onwards.

This announcement places RWG ahead of European regulation, which stipulates that all container, passenger and cruise ships larger than 5,000gt in European ports must use shore-based power by 2030. The RWG terminal is already fully automated and CO2 neutral.

Construction of shore-based power facilities means that vessels will also no longer emit particulates, nitrogen and CO2 when at berth.
