As of 1 January 2020, Port of Den Helder has completely switched to the use of green electricity. This is an important first step in the port's sustainability strategy. In addition to greening energy consumption, reducing emissions and promoting circularity are also important pillars of this sustainability strategy.
The green electricity is purchased from energy supplier Engie. Engie is an important partner of the port in the realization of sustainable solutions. Engie is also involved in the realization of a hydrogen filling station in the port, for both shipping and road traffic.
The green electricity that the port will purchase from this year is used for the shore power cabinets, the public lighting in the port, the operation of the structures (bridges and locks), as well as the pumping installations for drinking water on the quays.
