East Frisian culture meets efficient maritime industries
Emden – the most westerly German port and also the third-largest North Sea port is located right at the mouth of the Ems in the North Sea. This universal port, rich in tradition, consists of two parts: The tidal outer harbour as well as the tide-free inner harbour accessible via two sea locks. In the last 25 years it has developed into one of the most important RoRo ports in Europe. A strategic location and an outstanding infrastructure has made Emden Port an important starting point for the offshore sector.
EMO employs almost 30 people at its headquarters. In the port itself EMO has at its disposal several berths in the inner harbour immediately behind the lock and in the outer harbour at the AG “EMS” terminal.
