The following is a list of the projects that are currently ongoing in Delfzijl and Eemshaven.
Google is building a 600-million-Euro data centre in Eemshaven and Groningen Seaports sold 50 hectares of land to Google. The main reason why Google is building its data centre near Delfzijl in Groningen is the presence of an important internet hub at that location, where eleven of the fifteen internet cables that connect Europe with the United States land. The data centre is planned to be commissioned at the start of 2016.
- Gemini Windpark
The Gemini offshore wind park will be one of the largest wind parks in the world. It is under construction in the Dutch part of the North Sea, 85 km north of the coast of Groningen. The production capacity of Gemini is 600MW and will provide more than 785,000 households with sustainable electricity. The wind park will reduce CO2 emissions by 1.25 million tonnes, which makes a significant contribution to achieving independent energy provision and the sustainability targets of the Netherlands and Europe.
- Deepening fairway Eemshaven-North Sea
In order to make the port more accessible to large vessels, the Infrastructure and Environment Executive Rijkswaterstaat aims to deepen the fairway to a draught of 14 metres. At the same time, a traffic management system is working to coordinate shipping – the Vessel Traffic Management System (VTM).
- Biobased Energy
The Bio Based Energy programme line is focused on knowledge expansion and applying innovative technologies for bio-energy carriers, such as green gas, bio-methanol, bio-coal et cetera. This assumes good use of local biomass flows, such as VGF waste and residual products from the agro-industry. There will also be a link to using biomass and bio-energy carriers in the chemical sector.
