The construction phase of the energy hub for the Passenger Terminal is progressing steadily, according to Monic van der Heijden, commercial director Cruise Port Amsterdam (PTA).

In collaboration with PowerCon and subcontractor BAM Infra, work is currently underway on the foundation, which is expected to be completed by the end of April.

The structural construction of the building will begin in May and is anticipated to be finished by mid-July. In June the sea containers, housing the shore power installation for the cruiseships, will be installed inside the building.

Simultaneously, from April to September, CPA will also be addressing the cabling under the quayside and beneath the gangways.

The shore power installation, which has a capacity to connect one ocean cruiseship and eight river cruise ships, is scheduled for completion as planned in the first quarter 2025.

“The availability of shore power, as of 2025, is a major milestone in our ambition and strategy to accommodate emission-free cruising,” concludes Dick de Graaff, managing director CPA.

The energy hub is being financed by the Port of Amsterdam.
