Antwerp is the biggest port area in the world. Over the centuries, the area grew to exactly 12,068 hectares, or about 20,000 football fields. The port connects Antwerp, Flanders, Belgium and Europe with the world. Antwerp is the fifth-largest bunkering port in the world.
It therefore has an important role to play in the transition from fossil fuels to renewable sources of energy for shipping. The companies that operate at the port have to take measures to reduce pollution of the air, the water and the soil. Drones on land, in the water and in the air will make it easier in the future to conduct inspections and carry out logistical tasks in the port. For more info on the port of Antwerp click here.
