Port of Antwerp-Bruges joins plans for green corridor between Belgium and Sweden

The Port of Antwerp-Bruges has joined forces with the North Sea Port, the Port of Gothenburg and the shipping company DFDS to create a 'green corridor' between Belgium and Sweden. Ships using ammonia will sail between Belgium and Sweden.

The three ports have committed to providing the necessary infrastructure, while DFDS has promised that by 2030 at least two of its ships sailing between Belgium and Sweden will run on ammonia.

Ammonia-based fuel is much less polluting and the green corridor could significantly reduce CO2 emissions from the shipping sector. If successful, the Belgium-Sweden corridor would be the world's first green ammonia shipping corridor for cargo ships.

The three original partners signed a cooperation agreement in 2022 to decarbonise the transport corridor, which could potentially link 11 European countries by sea, land and rail from Norway in northern Europe to Spain in southern Europe.
