Energy & Industry

ROTTERDAM.
THE BEATING HEART OF
A GLOBAL ENERGY CLUSTER.

The port plays a key role in keeping north-western Europe supplied with reliable , sustainable and affordable energy. Not only do most of the raw materials used in the energy sector arrive at the Port of Rotterdam, the city also generates energy on a large scale. Rotterdam's businesses, the Port of Rotterdam Authority and the Municipality of Rotterdam have jointly invested in revolutionary solutions to achieve energy transition objectives.

Rotterdam is one of the world’s three major fuel hubs. So it is an ideal location for petrochemical companies and bio-based energy businesses that are looking for a favourable base for their operations. The presence of a large number of chemical companies and refineries in Rotterdam’s port area maximises efficiency. For example, the oil refineries supply raw materials to the chemical industry, while a number of chemical companies supply semi-finished products to other parties. Similar efficiencies are apparent elsewhere: e.g. tank storage, industrial gases, heat and steam generation, electricity generation and waste water purification.
