Europe's Industrial Cluster
In 2030, Rotterdam’s industrial and energy complex will function as an integrated cluster with Antwerp, making it the largest, most modern and most sustainable petrochemical and energy complex in Europe. This complex competes on a global scale thanks to its major cluster advantages, integrated supply chains and energy efficiency. The transition to sustainable energy generation and bio-based chemicals is in full swing.
In 2013, Rotterdam is the electricity hub of Northwest Europe and the largest petrochemical industrial complex in Europe. In order to maintain this position, to ensure that the production volume increases and to compete successfully with industrial clusters in other parts of the world, the Rotterdam complex will have to change in a number of areas by 2030.
