P3 Logistic Parks, a leading developer and long-term owner of logistics real estate in Europe, is planning around 140,000 square metres of logistics space in the JadeWeserPort freight village (GVZ) of Wilhelmshaven, Germany's only deep-water port.
Hapag-Lloyd will acquire a 30% stake in Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven (CTW) and 50% of the shares of Rail Terminal Wilhelmshaven (RTW) at JadeWeserPort. The terminal operator Eurogate continues to hold the remaining shares.
A current analysis summarizes the potential and opportunities the Wilhelmshaven port offers as a "green energy hub". Due to the energy transition, a change process is pending for the existing energy hub in Wilhelmshaven based on the handling of coal and mineral oil. This is now being actively designed.
Full terminals in the western ports as well as in other German seaports and the associated restrictions affecting the delivery of containers have created understandable annoyance among both customers shipping goods as well as service providers. Thanks to its free capacities, JadeWeserPort Wilhelmshaven can offer practical solutions which not only help customers maintain intact supply chains but also, as it is often the last loading port on the continent, allow more time for deliveries than at other ports coupled with usually representing the shortest transit time of goods to their final destination.
Port professionals from Wilhelmshaven have started the Wilhelmshaven Energy Hub 2.0 initiative to work out offerings and create opportunities for the location in a concerted effort.
