The Ports of Gothenburg and Rotterdam agree to form a green corridor to support sustainable shipping between the two ports.

The new agreement between the Port of Gothenburg and the Port of Rotterdam pledges to establish a Green Corridor between the two ports, seeking to put a framework in place for collaboration on new alternative fuels which are needed to reach full maritime decarbonization and reducing carbon emissions.

The Memorandum of Understanding was signed in Gothenburg during a Dutch state visit to Sweden which took place in parallel to the chainPORTS summit in Gothenburg. At the summit, the two parties discussed with eight other ports from how they can contribute to accelerating the availability of green hydrogen in Europe.

The parties intend to connect the green corridor to a larger network of deep-sea corridors, including the European green corridors network launched in March this year by the Maersk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero-Carbon Shipping. Rotterdam recently also launched a large Green Corridor initiative with the Maritime & Port Authority of Singapore.

It is worth mentioning that both ports are already actively involved in the development of more sustainable fuels for shipping. The port of Gothenburg facilitates the bunkering of methanol for RoPax ferries on a smaller scale since 2015 and the port of Rotterdam launched the world’s first barge-to-ship methanol bunkering operation in May 2021.
