Why shore-based power?

To reduce emissions and noise, a generator ban for inland vessels at public berths is in force in the port of Rotterdam. The use of shore-based power is in line with the policy of the city and the port to ensure economic development and quality of life in the area go hand in hand. The use of shore-based power by inland vessels keeps the air cleaner. It ensures lower emissions of nitrogen oxides and particulate matter in the immediate vicinity. It also reduces CO2 emissions. Moreover, the environment does not suffer from the noise of running generators.

Drinking water

Facilities for drinking water intake can be found at the Parksluizen, the Pionierkade and the Schaardijk. You can use Connect4Shore to collect water from the Pionierkade and the Schaardijk.
