In a first phase, an extra berth for the deep-sea activities will be realized and, in addition to further capacity expansion, the focus will also be on future-oriented facilities in which automation, sustainability and connectivity remain central.

The extra berth is an extension to RWG’s existing terminal based on the same proven concept; fully automated, CO2 neutral and dedicated handling facilities for all modalities.

A CEF subsidy has also been awarded from the European Union for the latter.

The total investment is approximately €500 million and initially includes civil works, quay cranes, storage modules with automatic stacking cranes and electrical automatic guided vehicles.

The Port of Rotterdam Authority has already started construction of the quay in the Amaliahaven, which will be completed in 2024.

The berth is expected to be operational at the end of the fourth quarter of 2025 with a commercial rollout in 2026.
