Plan Introduced for Waalwijk Container Terminal

Waalwijk has far-advanced plans for the construction of a container terminal outside the dykes on the Bergsche Maas, the Port of Rotterdam Authority announced.

As a result, it should be possible to handle vessels of up to 135 meters. The call for tenders for this project is planned for May or June of this year.

The current terminal, which handles about 45,000 TEU a year, is situated behind a lock, which limits the capacity of the vessels to 89 meters with a capacity of around 40 TEU per ship. It is not possible to enlarge the current lock, for technical reasons.

The costs of the new terminal are estimated at €25 million and the municipality of Waalwijk will pay part of this itself.
