Rotterdam, 31 August 2022

Hutchison Ports and Terminal investment Limited (TiL) have announced their intention to build a new container terminal at the Port of Rotterdam.

The terminal will be developed in the Europahaven, where the north side of the Hutchison Ports ECT Delta terminal and Hutchison Ports Delta II terminal are located. Both locations will be part of the new container terminal, of which the Rotterdam Port Authority will redevelop the quay walls.

The terminal, which should consist of five deep-sea berths with a total length of 2.6 kilometres, will be launched in phases and is expected to start the first phase of operation in 2027. After its redevelopment, the terminal is expected to have a capacity of 6 to 7 million TEU.

Leo Ruijs, CEO of Hutchison Ports ECT Rotterdam and Hutchison Ports Delta II said the following about the plans of HPH and TiL: “We are delighted to strengthen further our presence in the region, with the goal of building an automated container terminal that offers high productivity levels and a sustainable working environment.”

According to Ammaar Kanaan, CEO of TiL, shore power will be considered and further explored for users at the port, adding that “sustainability is a top priority for TiL and MSC. As the world’s largest container shipping company, we have a crucial role in creating a sustainable future.”
