The Port Authorities of Rotterdam and Gothenburg have signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the realization of a Green Corridor to support sustainable shipping between the two ports. As part of the Green Corridor initiative, the ports will establish a common framework for cooperation to stimulate the use of new alternative fuels which are needed to reach full maritime decarbonization and contribute substantively to the goals of the Paris Agreement. The parties intend to connect the Green Corridor between Gothenburg and Rotterdam to a larger network of deep-sea corridors, including the European Green Corridors Network launched in March this year by the Maersk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero-Carbon Shipping. Rotterdam recently also launched a large Green Corridor initiative with the Maritime & Port Authority of Singapore. Both ports are already actively involved in the development of more sustainable fuels for shipping. The port of Gothenburg facilitates the bunkering of methanol for RoPax ferries on a smaller scale since 2015 and the port of Rotterdam launched the world’s first barge-to-ship methanol bunkering operation in May 2021.
