The port of Rotterdam is and will remain operational. Thanks to you. Thanks to our #Portheroes. We’re proud to show how, thanks to the boundless commitment of local company staff, our port can remain up and running. In this first instalment of the #Portheroes series, we show how Rotterdam’s pilots are working hard to keep everything ‘business as usual’ in the port. An open call: interested in contributing to one of our videos? Please contact us via email@example.com. Due to the current measures, this video also contains archive footage.

It’s not always calm seas, helicopters and fast speedboats. In the third weekend storm this year, the pilot embarks MV VERA D by fast launch craft of the Pilot Station Vessel PROCYON. It takes professional teamwork by Pilotboat crew, the ship VERA D and VTS to board these ships in the harshest conditions in a violent Northsea. Well done and thanks to all players involved!
