Offshore Center Rotterdam (OCR)
The port of Rotterdam creates space for an offshore center for wind energy at sea. To this end, a new harbor area of up to 70 hectares and 1600 meter quay is being created on Maasvlakte 2 in the Princess Alexiahaven. The Port Authority expects the first companies to settle in 2019.
The development of the Offshore Center Rotterdam is in line with the Port Authority’s ambition to position Rotterdam as Europe’s foremost offshore hub, and to play a leading role in the energy transition. The Port Authority believes it is important that the existing cluster continues to develop so that existing knowledge can be maintained at the same high level, and that the area can draw new economic activity to both the city and the port.
