Duisport is to "ski off piste." It will develop a new business park with a container terminal and road and rail access at a site quite distant from the city Duisburg, although still in North Rhine Westhpalia
The 53-ha site is located at Grevenbroich, much nearer the Rhine port of Düsseldorf and the city of Mönchengladbach. At 55 kms by road from Duisburg, the new site is not water-linked, and is being co-developed by Duisport and RWG Power AG. There are good motorway links to the Ruhr Area and to the west ports (Rhine sea ports).
The site will include an 8-ha container terminal with intermodal rail service. The remaining 44-ha are earmarked for industrial manufacturing and related suppy chain businesses.
The site is on vast reclaimed grounds where lignite used to be mined for RWE’s power plant. No timetable has been given.
