Port of RotterdamThe first 30 hectares of an expansion of the Maasvlakte 2 Offshore Centre at the Port of Rotterdam has been completed. The work is being completed by a joint venture between two Dutch hydraulic engineering firms; Royal Boskalis Westminster NV and Van Oord NV.

The Offshore Centre will be located at Prinses Alexiahaven along Maasvlakte 2’s inland basin. PUMA has processed 6 million m3 of sand in four months. A further 2 million m3 is needed to raise the remaining 40 ha.

Work on the site, with a planned surface area of 70 ha, began in August 2017. Work on the construction of the quay walls is scheduled to start mid-2018 and is expected to be completed in 2019.

The office of the site fits into the Port Authority's strategic plan to further develop the Port to attract companies in the offshore and maritime sectors, including offshore wind and the decommissioning of oil and gas assets. Activities like construction, assembly, heavy lifting, logistics and mobilisation will be carried out from the new site.
