Alternative power could bring further heavy lift activity to Antwerp

March 15 - The construction of a large wind farm within the perimeter of the port of Antwerp itself could prove a boost in heavy lift activity at the port, with materials arriving by ocean shipping, barge or road services.

The Antwerp Port Authority and the Left Bank Corporation aim to built a large wind farm in the port on the left bank of the Scheldt in collaboration with private partners. There is a similar initiative being considered for the right bank.

The Flemish Wind Energy Association (VWEA) and the Flemish minister of energy Freya Van den Bossche has nominated the Antwerp seaport area "as an excellent location for setting up large-scale wind turbines," says a port spokeswoman.

The project is to be debated with all port users and stakeholders with further announcements planned in June.
