Port history in analogue and digital form

EMDEN. In late 2023, NPorts set up information boards featuring interesting facts about the seaport’s history at nine different locations at the Port of Emden, including the pumping station and the Outer Port. The project was initiated by Harald Frühling (centre), who was chairman of the works council at the port company for many years before retiring in November. He spent a year researching the port’s history and preparing the information himself. Besides photos and text, each board also provides a QR code to a website that offers more in-depth information about each structure.
