Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven (CTW)
Compared with the other ports on the German Bight Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven offers a number of advantages such as an 18m-deep shipping channel, tide-independent access for ultra-large container vessels with a draught of up to 16.5m, a 700m turning diameter on the River Jade and a short 23 nautical mile transit from and to the open sea. EUROGATE container terminal boasts 1,725m of continuous quay line including berths that accommodate ultra-large container vessels with a carrying capacity of over 20,000 TEU. The terminal operates the world’s largest container gantry cranes.
The JadeWeserPort freight village (GVZ) occupies 160 hectares adjacent to EUROGATE Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven; an arrangement that can easily be called unique. Their excellent transport infrastructure includes a traffic light-free connection to the A29 autobahn which leads all the way up to the port area, a direct connection to the rail network of Germany’s national railway, Deutsche Bahn, and an intermodal terminal that connects to 16 formation and preparation sidings which can accommodate block trains.
- Water depth: 18m chart datum
- 1,725m container quay line
- 4 berths that accommodate ULCV
The construction of a second container terminal some two kilometres to the north is technically feasible and would make economic sense in the medium term. This is the outcome of a feasibility study commissioned at the end of 2013.
