Hutchison Ports ECT Euromax is one of the most advanced and sustainable container terminals in the world. The automated terminal is located at the north-westerly corner of the Maasvlakte, almost directly on the North Sea. The ECT Euromax Terminal has been especially designed for the fast, safe and efficient handling of the biggest container ships. The depth along the quay can easily accommodate the very largest vessels fully laden. Just like at the ECT Delta Terminal, Ultra Large Container Carriers can be moored alongside the quay within one hour after entering the port, without being hampered by locks or tides.
All quay cranes at the ECT Euromax Terminal are semi-automatic and are fitted with a second trolley for even higher productivity levels. Eight cranes can be deployed per ship to optimise productivity. Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) transport the containers between the quay and the stack. In each of the dozens of stacking lanes, the work is carried out by two Automated Rail Mounted Gantry cranes or ARMGs, one on the waterside and one on the landside.
