Giant handling facilities. Major hub to Europe
EMO provides the giant handling facilities that the world’s largest bulk carriers require. Our terminal is a major hub in transporting coal and iron ore from all over the world to the large European hinterland. Our 170-hectare surface area holds seven million tonnes of storage capacity. Compared to other dry bulk terminals, EMO is ideally located on a 23 m deep waterway connected directly to the North Sea. Rotterdam harbour has excellent rail and waterway connections to the rest of Europe.
In addition to facilities for the storage and transhipment of coal and iron ore, EMO offers customers and potential customers value-added services, for example, in supplying coal and biomass-fired power plants. EMO can play a major role in processing biomass due to our knowledge of coal and biomass storage, logistics and technology, in combination with the room our terminal has for expansion.
