Rotterdam Port extends incentive to all Green Award-certified liquid bulk tankers
We understand from online shipping resources that Rotterdam Port has decided to extend incentive to all Green Award-certified liquid bulk tankers.
Rotterdam now offers a discount to LPG and LNG carriers and oil, product and chemical tankers of any size holding the Green Award certificate. Green Award is a certification and incentives programme for shipping that was established in 1994. The Port of Rotterdam was one of the founding fathers of Green Award and its very first incentive provider.
From 1st of January, 2019, every liquid bulk carrier of any size enrolled to Green Award will benefit from a discount on the vessels’ port dues when calling at Rotterdam. A discount of 15% on the vessels’ port dues related to the GT-size will apply. The Port Authority has also facilitated the pay-out process and will introduce a new system which makes claiming incentives unnecessary. The incentive will soon be automatically awarded upon notification by the agent that a vessel with a Green Award certificate is calling at the port. For further details, please access below links:-
