Coordinated by the Port of Antwerp, an international consortium will receive a €25 million grant from the Green Deal European Horizon 2020 programme.
The PIONEERS consortium representing leading ports, terminal- and transport operators, forwarders, knowledge institutes, technology developers, innovators and public entities will showcase concrete solutions reducing GHG emissions in ports while safeguarding their competitiveness. The project has a timeframe of 5 years starting at the end of 2021.
19 demonstrator projects
PIONEERS is a highly ambitious project, rethinking all aspects of port operations ranging from terminal operations, concession agreements, mobility, connectivity, fuels to models for cooperation and production, storage and use of energy. The PIONEERS consortium convinced evaluators with a variety of 19 ambitious demonstrators in the field of clean energy production and supply, sustainable port design, modal shift and flows optimization, and digital transformation.
MAGELLAN’s role will be set up a strong community around this ambitious action and facilitate the cross-cooperation among local and international stakeholders. It will also assure a transfer knowledge by creating tailor-made trainings per each demonstrators’ site.
