For the environment and region

As a forward looking business we are aware of our responsibility towards the environment and society. For that reason, we are active in various projects, organisations and working groups to help shape the future of our home region of Ostfriesland (East Frisia)

Greentech Ostfriesland (East Frisia)

One particularly important cooperation is with Greentech Ostfriesland. The initiative was established by the University of Emden-Leer, the Chamber of Commerce of East Frisia and Papenburg. With the cooperation of the city of Emden it tackles questions surrounding ‘green technologies, sustainability, and social responsibility’. It serves as a platform to jointly develop innovative products, sustainable technologies and eco-minded thinking – areas we gladly support.

Throughout our work practices we are preserving and protecting nature. We promote sustainability in our company. Our employees are environmentally aware of the need to protect this valuable resources. Our resources are implemented with care and to reduce as far as possible environmental risks.


How can our ports become more environmentally friendly and less polluting in the future? What role can hydrogen from renewables contribute to this? The project partners of the research and support project WASh2Emden will address these questions in the next one and a half years. We are pleased to be on board as a cooperation partner in this innovative and exciting project.

The project WASh2Emden – Innovative and environmentally friendly hydrogen applications in the seaport of Emden investigates the possibilities of storing surplus wind power in the form of “green” hydrogen and making it usable in various fields of application in the port of Emden. The aim is to reduce CO2 emissions and air pollutants in shore-based port operations, in logistics and in ships in port by using renewable hydrogen.

The cooperation project WASh2Emden is coordinated by lead partner Niedersachsen Ports and is supported by the funding program for Innovative Port Technologies (IHATEC) of the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI).

For strong development in the future.

In order to secure the future viability of our location in Emden, we not only promote environmental protection. Modernising the port is an important consideration to enable us to provide a solid logistical foundation for the economic growth of the region.

Our goal is to keep Emden competitive in the coming decades in harmony with the environment and the economy, meeting the expectations of our clients.
