“Energy PIONEERS” in the Port of Antwerp

The first collaboration within the PIONEERS project starts with the implementation phase in the Antwerp Euroterminal (AET). Indeed within the multipurpose terminal in Verrebroek, AET is implementing an energy transition strategy based on the installation of solar panels and wind turbines that will ensure that on a daily basis, in ideal conditions, a maximum capacity of 12.6 Megawatts of green energy can be generated on the company site.


PIONEERS consortium coordinated by Port of Antwerp-Bruges takes lead in greening of European ports
