After a three-and-a-half years of construction, port logistics firm Weserport, “bremenports” company together with other guests from the worlds of business and politics on November 3rd celebrated the completion of a new quay at Terminal 2 in Bremen.
The new development is associated with the extension of docks and the deepening of the industrial port in Bremen. Thanks to this development, the long-standing bottleneck at the docks has been completely eliminated.
The key element of this development project was dismantling of the old quay and the construction of a new 250-meter long quay that has been relocated three meters further inland next to the Terminal 2.
“While ships with a maximum draught of 9.45 meters were able to dock at the Hüttenhafen in the past, it’s now possible to unload vessels with a draught of up to 10.50 meters, following the extension work. It’s our goal to attract additional customers to the industrial port through the improved conditions,” said Heiner Delicat, Managing Director of Weserport.
According to managing director of “bremenports”, Robert Howe, “As a result of the building work at the Hüttenhafen, “bremenports” can make a contribution towards ensuring that this part of the ports area in Bremen is geared for the future.”
Weserport, a joint venture between the Rhenus Group and ArcelorMittal Bremen, operates four terminals at the industrial ports in Bremen; they cater for storing and handling steel, building materials, containers, bulk and break-bulk cargo and project loads.
