Start of “enerPort” Project – duisport as a model for other inland ports

Duisburger Hafen AG (duisport) and Fraunhofer UMSICHT are working with “enerPort” to develop a master concept for the use and supply of energy in the 1,550 hectare port areal.

enerPort, which receives more than EUR 1 million in financial support from the Federal Ministry of the Economy and Energy, uses the example of the Port of Duisburg to pursue a cross-industry approach for connecting the energy industry with the residential, commercial, industrial, logistics and transportation sectors.

In a first step, the Port of Duisburg defines the energy issues which are supposed to be optimized.

In the next step, the two project partners develop transferable solutions for other inland ports and a master concept for improved energy use / supplies.

duisport is aware that as port practitioners, the port is in a position to develop fundamental approaches for the energy transformation together with scientists. As the world’s largest inland port, Duisburg wants to set an example for other inland ports.

New hinterland connection to the Port of Zeebrugge

Duisburger Hafen AG (duisport), the Belgium port of Zeebrugge (Port of Zeebrugge) and the Cosco-Shipping Zeebrugge Terminal (CSP) have intensified their collaboration. Now the trilateral agreement regarding the new hinterland connection for combined rail transport has been formalized in a contract.

Cosco Shipping Lines has recently expanded its activities as part of the “Belt & Road” initiative with a weekly maritime connection from China to Zeebrugge. A weekly shuttle train transports goods between the Cosco-Shipping Zeebrugge Terminal and the Duisburg Intermodal Terminal (DIT) at logport I in the Port of Duisburg.

The operational processing of the train is handled by duisport subsidiary duisport agency GmbH (dpa). dpa is the central sales company providing solutions for traffic relations, transport chains and logistics. In this context, dpa draws on its extensive experience in intermodal transport solutions.
