Stena Line, an international transport and travel service company, and the Port of Rotterdam today announced their collaboration to build a second berth at the Stena Line terminal at Europoort, as part of a 27 million Euro investment.
“We believe in the future of Europoort as a strong freight hub on the North Sea and are committed to the development of the terminal as part of a long term investment plan. The second berth allows us to fully facilitate business development long-term and to meet future customer demand,” said Annika Hult, Route Manager, Stena Line North Sea.
The work to develop the new berth, with a length of 212 m and 6.30 m draft, will start shortly and is expected to be completed in Q1 2017.
The current berth will then be renewed and both berths are planned to be operational by January 1, 2018 offering Stena Line much greater flexibility to service the growing freight market.
