Sustainable bond for new logistics centres
Sustainable, large storage areas are more in demand than ever. In Eemshaven, right next to the seaport of Groningen in north-east Holland, Necron is building a 60,000 m2 multi-tenant logistics building on a 12-hectare site (equivalent to approx. 24 football pitches). VISUALISATION NECRON
Picard Angst ESG Competence Center expands the Bond Infrastructure Programme with a sustainable bond for three new logistics centres in the Netherlands. Built with renewable raw materials such as wood, the buildings are strategically located in Europe's leading logistics hub.
With the new Bond, Picard Angst is supporting the construction of three new sustainable logistics centres in Hoeksche Waartd, Dordrecht and Deventer. The environmentally friendly buildings will be constructed using renewable raw materials such as wood to keep the ecological footprint as small as possible. Wind turbines, among other things, serve as energy sources for the operation.
The Netherlands is already the leading logistics centre in Europe. And its attractiveness will continue to increase. On the one hand, due to the increasingly used Northeast Passage, which shortens the freight time from Europe to Asia by a third compared to the southern route through the Suez Canal. On the other hand, Holland, unlike Hamburg and Bremerhaven, has sufficient land reserves close to the coast.
The pandemic and the high demand have caused global supply chains to falter. This is leading to a widespread rethinking of just-in-time production in the industry. Thus, large storage areas in well-developed locations are more in demand than ever.
The three centres are strategically located in prime locations. The proximity to Rotterdam, the largest port for goods handling in Europe, but also the ideal position on the most important transport routes makes the logistics centres an ideal starting point for deliveries to all of Europe. Within 24 hours, 170 million consumers can be reached from Amsterdam or Rotterdam.
Logistic Center Hoeksche Waard
Logistic Center Dordrecht
Logistic Center Deventer
The land for all three projects has already been acquired and planning is well advanced. Construction is scheduled to start in the second quarter of 2022, with completion in mid-2023. The centre in Deventer is already fully leased for 20 years, and negotiations are underway for the other two properties.
