New quay opens in Bremen

The new quay at Terminal 2 in the Port of Bremen's Hüttenhafen removes a long-standing bottleneck for shipping traffic and permits access for deeper draft vessels

The project was carried out by Bremenports and Weserport and took 3.5 years to complete, including dismantling and removing the previous quay and construction of the new 250m long quay, which is poisitioned 3m further to the landside than the old quay, next to Terminal 2. Panmax vessels can now be handled there, thanks to the improved nautical conditions.

“While ships with a maximum draught of 9.45m were able to dock at the Hüttenhafen in the past, it’s now possible to unload vessels with a draught of up to 10.50m, following the extension work," said Heiner Delicat, Managing Director of Weserport, a joint venture of Rhenus Group and ArcelorMittal Bremen GmbH.

"That corresponds to as much as 5,000 tonnes of additional cargo, depending on the size of the ship. It’s our goal to attract additional customers to the industrial port through the improved conditions.”

Bremenports' Managing Director Robert Howe said: "The industrial port is a power house at the ports in Bremen. “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 handled the necessary adaptation work to the superstructure. This included work on the railway tracks, reinforcing the space for heavy loads and moving the two slewing portal cranes that have, in addition, been modified. Weserport's four terminals handled around 8.1 Mt of maritime cargo in 2016.
