With regard to the planned construction of a biomass power plant in logport VI in Duisburg-Walsum, duisport would like to note the following.
At the beginning of this year, the Port of Duisburg was approached by Steag regarding the construction of a biomass power plant on a maximum 3-hectare logport VI parcel located directly on the Rhine.
Given the positive and long-standing business relationships between the two companies, duisport immediately investigated whether such a power plant can be built on the land parcel, which covers an area of 40 hectares.
Since the use of this relatively small area would not have a negative impact on the overall use of logport VI for value-adding logistics, duisport subsequently offered Steag the area highlighted in the attached site plan. The incoming transport of biomass by ship also played a role in duisport's proposal to Steag.
The utilization of biomass in the planned power plant forms a part of the approval process between Steag and the approval authorities in charge.
