The ECT Delta Terminal receives some of the largest container ships in the world. To ensure that in terms of nautical accessibility, it continues to meet the requirements of the next generation of container ships, a 500-metre stretch of the Amazonehaven port basin at Maasvlakte will be deepened from 16.65 metres to 17.45 metres. This project, commissioned by the Port of Rotterdam Authority in partnership with Hutchison Ports ECT Rotterdam, is expected to be completed in the second half of November 2020.

This first step will already yield a significant improvement in the short term.

Once work on the project has been rounded off, the Port Authority and ECT will evaluate whether it is possible to deepen a larger section of the Amazonehaven basin. The partners intend to realise a comparable depth for at least two additional berths, each of which is 500 metres long.

The project will start with preparatory work in week 40. After this, the contractor will dredge three berths along the southern quay wall. Parties expect to round off deepening activities in week 47.
