Rotterdam harbour: in contact up till 40 miles into open sea

Rotterdam is the largest port in Europe; over 30,000 ocean-going vessels and 100,000 barges. The Port of Rotterdam Authority is responsible for the safe, efficient, clean and secure management of maritime traffic.

MEP in close collaboration with KPN supplied a complete marine telephone system with the option for expansion, including operator consoles at two Traffic Control Centres and the Harbour Coordination Centre. 

A safe harbour

The system ensures voice communications between vessels up to 60 km beyond the Hook of Holland and the Port of Rotterdam. This way we ensure that the Port of Rotterdam is and remains a safe harbour.
