Rio receives 10,500 TEU ship call

The Port of Rio de Janeiro has initiated its so-called "Ramp Up 2" stage

Following last year's successful dredging project in the access channel, the Port of Rio de Janeiro has been able to accommodate a ≥300m long container ship.

Hapag-Lloyd's 333m long SANTOS EXPRESS, with 123,490gt, a draft of 13.4m and a maximum intake of 10,500 TEU, arrived at the Libra terminal in Caju Dock on 3rd February.

The vessel arrived from Port Klang and its next port of call is along the Brazilian coast at Itaguaí.

The SANTOS EXPRESS call is part of the second phase of the so-called "Ramp Up," aimed at accommodating larger ships in a progressive manner, with experimental calls in two main stages. Under Ramp Up 1, the port can accommodate vessels up to 300m long and drawing up to 14.10m. Under the new Ramp Up 2 stage, ships up to 340m long and drawing up to 14.30m, will be a able to call, putting Rio de Janeiro in the 11,000-12,000 TEU class, thus further reducing container transportation costs.

The 14-month dredging programme was completed last November.
