The Seaport of Emden is the third largest German North Sea port. It is situated on the northern banks of the river Ems and consists of two parts: the Outer Port, exposed to the tides, and the tide-independent Inland Port, accessible via two sea locks.
Emden is a modern and highly productive all-round port. Throughout the past 25 years, it has evolved into one of Europe's most significant RoRo ports. Brand new cars, destined for export, comprise a large portion of the cargoes handled here. But the spectrum of goods, which we transship here, is much broader and includes liquid chalk, minerals, magnesium chloride, liquid fertilizers and project cargo, to name but a few.
Home Port for Wind Energy
Emden also plays a vital role in the expanding market of regenerative energies, particularly wind energy. This is where components for both on and offshore facilities are manufactured, assembled, and shipped. The port serves as a base for pre-assembly, transport and maintenance of the facilities and equipment for multiple wind farms within the German Bight.
