ENERGYPORT EEMSHAVEN
Power point (8,000 MW) of and balancing hub for Northwest Europe

Around a third of all the energy that is produced in the Netherlands comes from Eemshaven. With an installed capacity of 8,000 MW Eemshaven is an energy port of note. It is sufficient to supply half of the Netherlands with electricity! That makes it the energy port of the Netherlands, and perhaps even of Northwest Europe!

Energyport Eemshaven

Major energy producers have invested billions of Euros in new power stations; an oil terminal was built; Google is constructing an immense data centre; and Eemshaven houses the largest wind park on land in the Netherlands. The port also plays a prominent role in the development of wind parks at sea during their construction and the subsequent maintenance of the wind turbines.

ENERGY MIX

Eemshaven has several large power stations as well as several high-voltage and medium-voltage stations, which provide a guaranteed energy supply. There are three operational power stations: the gas-fuelled power stations of Engie (Eemscentrale) and Nuon/Vattenfall (Magnum power station) and RWE/Essent’s powdercoal & biomass power station. Besides power stations, other forms of energy are also available. Electricity from a Norwegian hydroelectric power station is transported to the Netherlands by means of the NorNed undersea highvoltage cable, whilst Norway is able to buy electricity from the Netherlands by using the same cable. A large converter station has been built in Eemshaven for this purpose. Advanced plans are in place for NorNed 2 and an undersea cable to Denmark – the COBRA cable – which would transport electricity from wind energy – is under construction. Gemini, in which the Canadian Northland Power has a big share, has built a landfall point of 600 MW for electricity that is generated by wind energy in the North Sea. And the share of offshore wind energy in Eemshaven will increase in future, because thousands of wind turbines are planned in the North Sea close to Eemshaven.

GREEN CONNECTIONS

By taking part in solar and wind energy projects, Groningen Seaports intends to contribute to improving the sustainability of energy production. Renewable energy is in keeping with various aspects of the green port vision (CO2 reduction, improved sustainability, greening the chemical cluster, etc.) and the visions in Eemsdelta and the Province of Groningen. Green energy is also completely in line with the ambition of Groningen Seaports as an energy port. The premises of Groningen Seaports have been accommodating dozens of wind turbines for many years, and three solar parks are now also under development. The port also plays a prominent role in the development of wind parks at sea during their construction and the subsequent maintenance of the wind turbines. All these turbines add a significant amount of sustainable energy to the power mix and it is expected that the share of wind energy will increase in the near future creating new business opportunities. Moreover Eneco and RWE/Essent use 1.5 million tons of biomass every year to make green energy.

ENERGY SUPPLY

For instance the data center market is characterised by a demand for extremely reliable power supply. Many energy producers have already established themselves in Eemshaven or are in the process of doing so, which enables Groningen Seaports to meet a reliable power demand and present itself as a highly attractive location for data centers. The region offers an excellent energy grid with a lot of power stations in the area. The average availability of the Dutch energy grid over the last five years accounted to 99,9943%. This incredibly high percentage is even higher in Eemshaven, due to the excellent connections.
