Second Maersk Line’s Triple E-Class Vessel to Call at EUROGATE in Wilhelmshaven (Germany)

Second Maersk Line’s Triple E-Class Vessel to Call at EUROGATE in Wilhelmshaven

The second mega container ship in Maersk Line’s E-class, the “Eugen Maersk” is to call at EUROGATE Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven in July (week 29).

The “Eugen Maersk” operates on the AE10 service (Far East – Europe) and is planning an unscheduled port call in Wilhelmshaven. On 4 July 2013 and on 11 July 2013, the feeder vessels “Maersk Ohio” (4,544 TEUs) and “Santa Ricarda” (4,112 TEUs) are expected to deliver containers to the terminal for loading onto the “Eugen Maersk”.

EUROGATE Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven uses the biggest gantry cranes in the world to load and unload container ships. These cranes are capable of spanning 25 rows on deck. By way of comparison: the “Eugen Maersk” has 22 container rows on deck. However, it is not only the technology of this large-scale equipment that is ground-breaking. The organisation of ship clearance processing is just as innovative. This is based on experience gained at other container terminal facilities. Thanks to this experience, EUROGATE Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven is able to manage optimised operations with highly productive processes.

The large container vessel “Eugen Maersk” is a member of Maersk Line’s E-class and after delivery of the first 18,000-TEU vessels the world’s third largest class of container ships. At 397 m she is one of the longest container vessels in the world. Ships in the E-class have a load capacity of 15,000 standard containers (TEUs).

TOC Americas

TOC (The Terminal Operations Conference) has long been considered best in class by container terminal operators and their suppliers. Over time, TOC has evolved and whilst they continue to deliver the highest quality technical content in line with their heritage, they also recognise that they must now hear from stakeholders higher up the cargo chain. Therefore, there are now two distinct elements to the event:

The exhibition is a showcase for port & terminal technology and operations plus TECH TOC, the free to attend technical conference aimed at terminal operators and their suppliers. Many suppliers come together to showcase cutting edge solutions to their clients, the terminal operators and ports.

More recently, the events now placed a new focus on the container supply chain making them the premier business and networking event for the stakeholders, including shippers, carriers and 3pl’s as well as the global operators and port authorities. This conversation takes place in the more recently created Container Supply Chain Conference.
