Port of Flevokust, just north of the city of Lelystad, is an multimodal inland port with a transhipment quay and industrial estate. This new industrial port will accommodate goods import and export to and from the major Benelux seaports. In addition to connecting various transport modalities, the eco-friendly Port of Flevokust will provide space for the enrichment and reuse of products in a circular economy. A breakwater in front of the quay will allow the port to fully function up to wind force 7.
The flow of containers from and to Dutch sea harbours will increase in the next decades, with more and more being transported by inland waterway to the catchment area. Inland ships travel to and from Flevokust Haven to Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Antwerpen. The focus increasingly lies on lines from Antwerp and the German catchment area. The challenge is to use these connections in such a way that the expected streams can be forwarded easily and quickly.
Flevokust Haven description
Plenty of space
The expected volume for this excellent new facility is 90,000 TEU by 2020. CTU Flevokust is already operating the new terminal with temporary facilities.
The total port size when completed will initially be five hectares, invcluding an impressive 400 metres of quay. There is easily room to expand the site to 10 hectares. Some 43 hectares of industrial estate is also being issued in stages, and this area can be expanded to 115 hectares.
Port of Flevokust is offering a wide range op options in terms of plot size and building heights up to 40 metres. Space will also be available for agro-related and biobased activities, and the port will actively facilitate the connection between government bodies, companies, educational institutes and research institutions.
Various types of business
As a future transhipment port with container terminal and 'port-related industrial estate', Port of Flevokust has potential for a wide variety of businesses, such as transporters and manufacturers who need to transport their raw materials or other products. Although many of these transports will be realised in containers, there will also be space for bulk cargo. The industrial estate has a maximum building height of 40 metres, making it an attractive location for cooling and storage warehouses. For port-related business, it is ideal that the premises will be directly connected to the quay via an internal road.
The ideal sustainable business location, Port of Flevokust will be ahead of the game in terms of renewable energy and environmental regulations. Lots for companies in environmental catgeories 3.1 - 5.2 are available in varying sizes, with category 2 as an option if port-related.
Port of Flevokust is situated adjacent to the ENGIE Maxima plant. This global frontrunner in clean energy can supply large power units to companies in the port. ENGIE has also signed a statement of intent for a sustainable area development with the Province of Flevoland, including a 30-hectare solar park.
