THE Port of Halifax's South End Container Terminal extension is now fully operational, having already received the first vessel to call, the 4,250-TEU Zim Tarragona, reports the American Journal of Transportation.

The South End Container Terminal, operated by PSA Halifax, now has the longest and deepest container berth in eastern Canada, 800 metres in length and 16 metres alongside.



The recent installation of a new superpostpanamax crane, the largest in eastern Canada, brings the total complement of superpostpanamax cranes at PSA Halifax to five.



Vessels over 15,000 TEU already calling further show how the Port of Halifax is a significant player among east coast deep water ports and is taking part in the growing deployment of mega ships.



'We have the capability to berth two ultra-class vessels simultaneously, or three vessels on the strategically important Mediterranean, North Europe and Regional trades,' said PSA Halifax CEO Kim Holtermand.
