Miriam Maes has been appointed to the supervisory board of the Port of Rotterdam Authority, effective 1 January 2016. Maes will replace Merel Vroonhoven, who resigned from the board on 1 July 2015.
Maes has extensive experience in the energy sector, serving as the delivery adviser to the Department of Energy and Climate Change and as a Senior Fellow of the Climate Change and Energy Programme of the trans-Atlantic think tank, German Marshall Fund of the United States. In addition to this, she is the founder and CEO of the energy and climate change consultancy, Foresee, which was established in 2007.
In December 2015, Port of Rotterdam announced that STX Offshore & Shipbuilding had commenced construction of an LNG bunker vessel, which will be based in the port. This comes as part of Port of Rotterdam’s wider aim of encouraging LNG bunkering operations.
