Rhenus Port Logistics in Rotterdam and Seaway7 have signed a 10-year agreement to extend their partnership.


As a result of the agreement, Seaway7 will remain a long-term customer of the Rhenus Deep Sea Terminal for the mobilisation and demobilisation of its vessels in support of the oil and gas and renewable energy industries.

Piet van Baalen, offshore resources director at Seaway7, said: “The location of the Rhenus terminal so close to the North Sea is incomparable and provides Seaway7 with the needed flexibility.”

Both companies have also pledged to advance the sustainability of their operations, incorporating initiatives such as the use of electric cranes and forklifts, along with launching a pilot project for shore power. 

The project falls within the wider aim of the port of Rotterdam to roll out shore power in the entire port as an environmentally friendly and quiet method of powering ships. As part of Rhenus and Seaway7’s pilot project, the first ships are expected to be plugged in from 2026.
