The Port of Hamburg’s Container Terminal Burchardkai (CTB) welcomed on May 15 MOL Triumph, the first vessel with a loading capacity of over 20,000 TEU to visit this port. 

Delivered to Japanese shipping company Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) in March this year, the 20,150 TEU MOL Triumph is deployed in THE Alliance’s FE2 service between Asia and Europe.

According to the Port of Hamburg, some 3,500 TEU will be loaded and 6,000 TEU discharged from the containership which is scheduled to leave the Elbe conurbation on May 18.

“It is an amazing moment to have the MOL Triumph here in the Port of Hamburg. Our shipping line has been really exerting itself, working towards this moment for the last three years,” Jan Holst, Director North Europe for MOL in Hamburg, said.

“HHLA is pleased that with the MOL Triumph it can handle and clear the first 20,000-TEU containership in the Port of Hamburg at its Burchardkai terminal,” Jens Hansen, Executive Board member and Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA), commented.

“In recent years, HHLA, through investments in gantry-crane technology and storage capacity, has prepared with the objective of clearing mega-ships like the MOL Triumph,” Hansen explained.

HHLA Container Terminal Burchardkai has two berths required for handling the new 20,000 TEU containerships, with thirteen cranes in operation at CTB.

Up to nine of these container gantry cranes will operate in parallel on the MOL Triumph, according to the port.
