Eurogate has welcomed the world’s largest container ship at its container terminal in Wilhelmshaven.
Currently the world’s biggest box ship with an intake of 21,413 TEU, OOCL GERMANY docked for the first time at Eurogate Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven as part of her maiden voyage.
“Although we are witnessing the world’s largest container vessels at Wilhelmshaven on a weekly basis, each occasion is still something very special,” said Mikkel Andersen, Managing Director.
“We see this as a sign that our customer OOCL is very happy with the performance of the container terminal.”
OOCL GERMANY is the second in a series of six ships in OOCL’s G class. “We already welcomed her sister ship OOCL HONG KONG on 2nd July,” added Mr Andersen.
OOCL GERMANY operates on the Ocean Alliance’s Asia-North Europe Loop 1 (LL1) and after Wilhelmshaven will call Felixstowe.
Eurogate Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven operates in Germany’s only natural deep water port. Ultra-large container vessels can dock and depart here at all times independently of the tides.
