North Sea Port


North Sea Port

Experience North Sea Port while visiting the exhibit at the Portal of Flanders. The exhibit showcases contemporary North Sea Port during a special augmented reality experience.

On a model, half a meter high, the entire port area is carved in relief. The visitor can point a few ipads at the model on which information appears: the boundaries of the port area, the Westerschelde and Ghent-Terneuzen Canal, the harbors/docks, roads, railroad lines, nature and buffer areas, business parks, windmills, names of the towns and municipalities in and around the port area. Videos explain the entry of ships and the unloading, storage, reloading and further transportation of goods. Thus one sees companies, ships and port infrastructure. A unique insight into the port area where you as a visitor may or can never come.

The video wall shows images slowly progressing on sounds from the port, drawing the visitor into the port. The images show numerous facts and figures: North Sea Port as a logistics hub central to Europe and as a multimodal port accessed by inland waterway, rail, road and pipeline. About the port's place in the European top 10, figures on area and size of the area and added value. And, the main trading partners, the different types of goods and activities and 1,000 hectares of space to develop.
