Offshore in Amsterdam
For Amsterdam, offshore is a growing market. The Amsterdam region is home to a wide range of experienced parties and in the port region, there is sufficient space for offshore activities in the area of renewables, oil and gas and repair and decommissioning.
Combined with a favourable geographical location in relation to the North Sea and connections to the hinterland, means an important role for Amsterdam in the offshore industry.
The largest wind farms at sea will be built off the coast of the Amsterdam metropolitan region in the coming decades. Offshore wind is therefore an enormous growth market for the region.
Repair and decommissioning
Amsterdam is the perfect location for the maintenance of ships. Several companies are active in the port for the repair and decommissioning of ships.

Port of Amsterdam and the energy transition
Renewable energy and renewable raw materials are the essential pillars for a new energy and industrial system to be built. In order to remain an energy port in the future, we are looking for new cargo flows and ways to generate sustainable energy. We do this together with the energy customers in the port and with other partners.
