International engineering consultancy, Royal HaskoningDHV, has built on the desire to lead in streamlining port operations, through the addition of Green Port services.
The Green Port solutions were created in response to the challenges ports face today to ‘go green’ – with Net Zero and other targets looming in the years to come – as well as pressure from the public and industry bodies alike to operate more efficiently and sustainably.
Among the Green Port services offered by Royal HaskoningDHV, there is support for ports looking at energy transition and efficiency, nature-driven design, feasibility studies, climate resilience and accessing investment.
Speaking about the addition, Caroline Price, Director of Green Ports at Royal HaskoningDHV, said: “Ports today face a range of challenges – from making use of the immense amounts of data they generate daily, to becoming more sustainable and efficient in the face of government and industry targets; all while remaining profitable and operational.
“Juggling these challenges is not an easy task and that’s why our Green Ports service brings together our industry leading experience in port design and operations with sustainability, technology and finance experts; to provide ports with the advice, strategies and tools to develop solutions that deliver in practice – whether it’s energy transition and climate resilience planning, smart operation solutions that improve efficiency or green investment support from our maritime economists.
“The world is changing in many ways – COVID-19 is proof of that – and we are delighted to be supporting the ports sector to adapt and thrive in the years to come.”
The Green Port operations are part of Royal HaskoningDHV’s wider Smart Ports services that combine digital innovation and tools with operator intelligence; enabling ports to work more efficiently and streamline operational costs.
