First ship in deepened Amazonehaven

First ship in deepened Amazonehaven

Last Saturday, November 7, 2020, the NYK Wren, a container vessel with a draft of 16.1 meters, moored in the deepened Amazonehaven, alongside the quay of the ECT Delta terminal.

The dredging works, carried out by Van Oord on behalf of the Port of Rotterdam Authority and ECT, was completed two weeks earlier than originally planned.

The ECT Delta terminal receives the world's largest container ships. In order to remain easily accessible in the future for the latest generation of container ships, the Port of Rotterdam Authority, in collaboration with ECT, has had the Amazonehaven on the Maasvlakte deepened from 16.65 meters to 17.45 meters over – in this first phase - a length of half a kilometer.
