The port of Rotterdam aims to become Europe’s ultimate offshore port. The Port of Rotterdam Authority is making every effort in this regard and imposes no restrictions on realising offshore ambitions. Projects of any size can establish themselves in the port of Rotterdam and the possibilities will only increase in the coming years.

What the port of Rotterdam has to offer

  • Sufficient space for offshore development, both on land and in the water
  • Large, existing maritime cluster
  • Wide range of repair and maintenance facilities
  • Offshore test and demo locations
  • Partnerships regarding branding and marketing
  • Sheltered berths with a water depth of up to 26 metres, close to the North Sea

For the port of Rotterdam, developing offshore possibilities is more than just providing land and quays. The Port of Rotterdam Authority is working hard to link new players to already established companies and to connect them with knowledge institutes, including TU Delft and technical schools.

The Port Authority is focusing on the following markets:

  • Offshore wind (installation & decom)
  • Oil & Gas
  • Manufacturing and assembly industry, conversion projects and mobilisation and demobilisation projects
  • Innovations and start-ups

Offshore Community Rotterdam

PoR is proud partner of the Offshore Community Rotterdam. In partnership with the Rotterdam Port Promotion Council almost 100 companies active in the offshore industry in and around the port region present themselves as the complete and diverse cluster for all offshore related activities. By promoting and working together, this community strengthens the position of Rotterdam as the main offshore port in Europe.
