JadeWeserPort II Feasibility Study Results Presented

The construction of a second container terminal at JadeWeserPort, approximately 2 kilometers to the north, is not only technically realizable, but also economically prudent in the medium term.

This is the key finding of a feasibility study begun at the end of 2013 on behalf of Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven JadeWeserPort Marketing GmbH & Co. KG.

The requirements analysis was prepared by the ISL Institut für Seeverkehrswirtschaft und Logistik in Bremen (Institute for Shipping Economics and Logistics).

“It is good that the feasibility study is now available for the second construction phase. This shows that the construction of a second container terminal in Wilhelmshaven is not only technically feasible, but also economically prudent in the medium term,” said Olaf Lies, Niedersachsen’s Economic Affairs and Ports Minister.

“According to the study, the current port will reach the limits of its capacity by 2027. We will invest in the construction planning in future when this forecast is increasingly underpinned by facts. We have therefore decided to only push ahead with more planning when JadeWeserPort has clearly passed the one million TEU per year container handling milestone for the first time.”

The study covered eight aspects in total, including the main operating parameters such as quay length and site depth for a competitive and independently-operating container terminal, as well as the cost-benefit ratio.

Other aspects analysed included the evaluation of the building plot and sand extraction, a differential assessment of road and rail connections, as well as a nautical simulation to analyse the safety and easy handling of the shipping traffic.
