Germany-based logistics firm duisport has revealed plans to establish the trimodal Duisburg Gateway Terminal (DGT) in collaboration with Cosco Shipping Logistics, Hupac and the HTS Group.
The DGT will be Europe’s first climate-neutral container terminal powered by hydrogen technology once it is operational.
The terminal is expected to be completed by 2023.
duisport sustainability manager and corporate development deputy head Alexander Garbar said: “Specifically, we will implement a sustainable, hydrogen-based energy concept that aims for a high level of self-sufficiency.
“An intelligent local energy network couples and controls renewable energies in the form of photovoltaic and hydrogen-based combined heat and power plants with electrical and thermal energy storage systems, as well as hydrogen storage and consumers such as onshore power, charging stations and crane systems.”
