The Port of Rotterdam is creating space for an offshore center for wind energy at sea, decommissioning (the dismantling of oil and gas platforms) and the oil and gas market – Offshore Center Maasvlakte 2 (OCMV2), the port said in its latest release. 

This new site of up to 70 hectares will be created using the hydraulic filling technique on Maasvlakte 2 in the Prinses Alexiahaven.

The Port Authority will make a start as soon as possible on reclaiming the first 30 hectares and installing a heavy load deep sea quay, initially of 600 meters, with the necessary infrastructure.

OCMV2 will be located in Princess Alexiahaven against the seawall, near the berth of the Pioneering Spirit.

The Center could potentially be extended by a further 40 hectares and 1,000 meters of quay wall, the port said.

The plan is that the first businesses will become operational on OCMV2 in the course of 2019.
