Offshore Center Maasvlakte 2 to Set Up in Port of Rotterdam

 

The Port of Rotterdam is planning to create a new port site of up to 70 hectares using the hydraulic filling technique on Maasvlakte 2 in the Prinses Alexiahaven.

The Port of Rotterdam is creating the space for an offshore centre for wind energy at sea, decommissioning and the oil and gas market.

The Port Authority expects the first companies to move in within two years.

“The creation of wind farms at sea is a huge growth market. This requires a specialized port area for the installation and maintenance of the farms, which we would like to provide. This is consistent with our efforts to be the offshore hub of Europe and play a leading role in the energy transition,” said Allard Castelein, CEO of the Port Authority.

The Port Authority will make a start as soon as possible on reclaiming the first 30 hectares and installing a heavy load deep sea quay, initially of 600 meters, with the necessary infrastructure.

The plan is that the first businesses will become operational on Offshore Center Maasvlakte 2 (OCMV2) in the course of 2019.

The Center could potentially be extended by a further 40 hectares and 1,000 meters of quay wall, the Port Authority said.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
