Port of Rotterdam Authority to deepen Amazonhaven basin

THE Port of Rotterdam's ECT Delta Terminal, operated by Hong Kong's Hutchison Ports, has undertaken to dredge the Amazonhaven port basin at Maasvlakte to a depth of 17.45 metres from its present 16.65 metres.

Preparatory work starts before October 1. After this, the contractor will dredge three berths along the southern quay wall. Parties expect to round off dredging mid-November.



The purpose of the deepening is to meet the needs of the next generation of containerships over a 500-metre stretch of the Amazonehaven port basin.



Once done, the Port Authority and ECT will evaluate whether it is possible to deepen a larger section of the Amazonehaven basin. The partners intend to realise a comparable depth for at least two additional berths, each of which is 500 metres long.
