All shore power points ‘smart’ from now on

In November 2022, we replaced the shore power points on the inland shipping jetty in the Nieuwe Houthaven with 'smart' shore power points. A real milestone, because now all the shore power points are smart in the port of Amsterdam!

The advantages of these smart shore power points? They are ergonomically designed, so the plugs are very easy to connect and Port of Amsterdam can reset the power points remotely in case of a malfunction. We have also reinforced the embankment of the breakwater in the Houthaven. Therefore it is no longer obligatory to moor 'bow to front'. You can also moor with the stern near the shore power point. Because of this, connecting the ship to shore power is even easier.

Generator ban as of mid-January 2023
As a result of placement of the smart shore power points throughout the port, there will be a generator ban at the waiting berths in the Houthaven, Nieuwe Houthaven and Minervahaven as of mid-January 2023. Once the generator ban is in effect, it is indicated on the signs.
