Maasvlakte 2

Sinds begin 2010 werkt Next Generation Infrastructures samen met de projectorganisatie Maasvlakte 2, onderdeel van het Havenbedrijf Rotterdam. Het doel van deze samenwerking is om bestaande kennis van Next Generation Infrastructures toe te passen voor de ontwikkeling, realisatie en inrichting van Maasvlakte 2.

De ontwikkeling van de Maasvlakte 2, de uitbreiding van de Rotterdamse haven in zee, kwam voort uit het probleem dat na decennia van groei het bestaande havengebied zijn grenzen had bereikt: de ruimte was op.

Met de landwinning tussen 2013 en 2033 wordt er geleidelijk aan ruimte voor een extra overslagcapaciteit van 17 miljoen TEU gerealiseerd, wat een verdubbeling is van de huidige maximale overslagcapaciteit.

11 projecten

De verwachte economische groei die de Maasvlakte 2 gaat opleveren moet echter volgens Rotterdam plaatsvinden onder de randvoorwaarde zij hand in hand moet gaan met de leefbaarheid in de regio.  Om deze problematiek het hoofd te bieden heeft NGInfra samen met het Havenbedrijf Rotterdam in de afgelopen jaren 11 projecten uitgevoerd.

Deze projecten hebben vele inzichten en concreet bruikbare tools verschaft, die het Havenbedrijf nu gebruikt bij beslissingen op het gebied van duurzaamheid, ruimtelijke ontwikkeling, bereikbaarheid en energiehuishouding van de Maasvlakte 2.

  • ABM simulation of cluster developments on Maasvlakte 2 
    The project “Digital evolution of the MV2 cluster” allows to calculate many futures for the Maasvlakte 2 and to explore patterns and path dependence in the cluster development so the” family tree “of possible combinations of clusters can be identified.
  • Benegrids: Getting more benefits from grids
    The Benegrids project has sought to explore possibilities for synergy in the Rotterdam port area by making better use of available industrial networks.
  • De ontwikkeling en verduurzaming van een synthesegasinfrastructuur 
    Syngas is a strategic intermediate mass and energy carrier. It offers the Harbor Industrial Cluster of Rotterdam an opportunity to strengthen its role as energy port by rejuvenating and assimilating the power and industry sector. This assists the Port Authority to navigate towards the realization of sustainable syngas infrastructures.
  • Flexibel afvangen windenergiepieken in een havenindustrieel cluster
    Dit project heeft aangetoond hoe kan worden omgegaan met de toenemende volatiliteit in electriciteitsprijzen door het fluctuerende aanbod van duurzame zon- en windenergie.
  • Publicatie: Modelling cooperation in infrastructure networks artikel vakblad
    This paper describes the translation of concepts of cooperation into an agent-based model of an industrial network. It first addresses the concept of cooperation and how this could be captured as heuristical rules within agents. Then it describes tests using these heuristics in an abstract model of an industrial network. The discussion addresses the question whether the right level of abstraction is chosen and preliminary endings.
  • Project: cooperation in socio-technical systems as a response to uncertainty in energy supply
    This study will look at how cooperative strategies can help socio-technical systems to respond to uncertainty over energy supply. The proposed research aims to contribute to understanding the different ways in which actors cooperate in complex settings.

    Using Gilbert networks to reveal uncertainty in the planning of multi-user infrastructures artikel vakblad
    When cost is the main consideration and the costs are only determined by the total length of the network, the optimal network infrastructure roll-out between several nodes is determined by minimal spanning trees and Steiner minimal trees. We explain that when capacities also play a role in the cost function a minimal Gilbert network gives the cheapest network structure. However, these kinds of networks can only be determined when locations of participating nodes and required capacities are known in advance. When participating nodes are not yet determined, we provide a probabilistic extension to these networks that can minimise planners’ regret, thus contributing to a more robust design for the network topology.
