The 2.7m teu capacity terminal built entirely on reclaimed land claims zero C02 emissions with its power requirements provided by wind-generated electricity. The terminal also features the world’s first remote controlled ship-to-shore gantry cranes.
“APM Terminals Maasvlakte II is clearly a game-changer port in the shipping industry designed to exceed our customers’ expectations,” said Kim Fejfer, ceo of APM Terminals.
“It is significantly safer for our people and all users of the port. It runs on a zero emissions, sustainable business model using renewable energy, benefitting the people of Rotterdam and Europe. And, equally important, our shipping line customers will experience 40% higher productivity – thanks to automation.”
Once fully built out the terminal will have an annual capacity of 4.7m teu.
