Vopak Solar Park Eemshaven opens in the Netherlands

by Denise Moose

Vopak Solar Park Eemshaven recently opened in Groningen province in the Netherlands. The new solar park has a capacity of approximately 25 megawatts, which is equivalent to an average consumption of about 8,000 Dutch households.

Vopak Solar Park Eemshaven is a joint venture between Vopak, Groningen Seaports, and funds managed by Whitehelm Capital.

The solar park is built on 19 hectares (2 million square-feet) around Vopak Terminal Eemshaven. The entire solar park is now operating and supplying the Dutch electricity grid.

"We are very pleased with the successful delivery of this solar park,” said Timo Spaninks, managing director at Vopak. “For Vopak, it marks the moment when we switch completely to green energy for our Dutch terminal activities. In this way, we are actively contributing to the greening of the logistics chains of our customers and our role in society — storing vital products with care.”
