The purpose of which is to alleviate unnecessary ship pollution by studying the operational patterns of harbor tug use. The Port of Rotterdam is spearheading the project with a goal that by the it will have reduced its air pollution by ten percent. The E3 project represents three main design criteria: E fficient in operations, E nvironmental friendly and E conomically viable. The project itself is divided into three key stages.
