DeltaPort in the “EcoPorts Network”

Through its membership in the “EcoPorts Network” DeltaPort voluntarily contributes to the environmental protection beyond the standard requirements. DeltaPort was the first European inland port to be granted the status of an “EcoPort”. We make the following contributions to a sustainable port operation:

•    Shore Power

In the future, the City Port of Wesel will supply barges with shoreside power. The necessary technical equipment is in place. The shore power is pure green electricity from 100% hydroelectric power.

•    Waste Management

Barges and other inland vessels can hand over their sorted solid waste and have their slops (a mixture of cargo residues and washing water, rust, or slurry) expertly disposed. In addition, the company GS-Recycling will build two berths for the cleaning of barges in accordance with CDNI.

•    Electric Cars

Environmentally friendly cars have been provided for the Harbor Masters. They serve as means of transportation for official daily trips between the sites. The electric vehicles do not emit any CO2 and therefore contribute to climate protection.

•    Multimodal Transport

Multimodal transport is a crucial element of green logistics. By including barge and rail in the transport chain, the polluting road transport can be kept at a minimum.
