The construction of a new terminal with a capacity of 80,000 TEU on the Wilhelminakanaal in Tilburg has started.
The new terminal of the Versteijnen Groep will be in the business park Vossenberg West II, which can grow to a good 100 hectares and is intended mainly for logistics businesses. The terminal, with a surface area of three hectares, will cost more than ten million Euros, a quarter of which is for the crane.
The new facility will soon be visited twice daily by ships up to class V with loads up to 100 TEU.
