HAROPA - Port of Rouen has several levers to promote the development of renewable energies and associated installations on its territory:
- development of its land or built heritage to receive renewable energy producers: HAROPA - Port of Rouen is currently studying the opportunity and feasibility of installing photovoltaic panels on the roofs of port hangars and is considering the installation of solar farms on non-constructible land in the port area;
- implementation of a pricing policy in favour of renewable energy sectors: the port has adopted measures on biomass (wood-energy) in its tariff policies to support the evolution of the energy mix of hinterland actors (power plants or urban or industrial boilers, etc);
- technical support to promote the development of sectors and/or establishment projects promoting renewable energies:
→ investments made in the Rouen and Radicatel port terminals to offer a very good level of service for the reception and transit (exceptional transport) of the onshore wind energy sector, where traffic is growing rapidly;
→ technical support for the implementation of a biomass terminal on the Quai de Petit Couronne to manage by-products and waste of plant origin from cereal silos in energy by methanization (production of gas injected into the nearby network).
