ArcelorMittal and Dow Benelux will start trials with a new pilot installation that will separate carbon dioxide (CO2) and carbon monoxide (CO) from the gases resulting from steel production. The installation is located at the ArcelorMittal company site in the North Sea Port in Ghent.
North Sea Port provides shore-side power for inland waterway vessels. With the addition of two new shore-based power units in Ghent, shore-side power is now available in Terneuzen and Ghent. North Sea Port is thereby taking further steps to improve air quality in the port.
ArcelorMittal Belgium invested 13.3 million euros in two new customised port cranes. The biggest of the two cranes, which has a maximum height of no less than 85 metres, sailed passed the Lock of Terneuzen on Wednesday 27 February.
North Sea Port, located along both banks of the Western Scheldt, is accessible to global shipping via the North Sea.
