EMO , the European dry bulk commodities and transhipment company, is one of the largest dry bulk terminals in Europe. The biggest seagoing vessels from all over the globe berth along the EMO quay. Rotterdam is a hub for Europe. Almost 80% of dry bulk commodities are transported either via rail or water to the German hinterland. EMO provides these services for customers in the steel industry, silicon industry and the energy sector. The steel industry processes iron ore and coal, supplied via EMO into numerous products such as passenger cars, wind turbines, bridges including Rotterdam’s fabulous Erasmus Bridge, and other steel structures for the construction industry. The silicon industry uses coal as a raw material for example in solar panels. Coal is also used for power generation.
