Stena agrees new Rotterdam berth

July 14 - Stena Line and the Port of Rotterdam have agreed to collaboratively build a second berth at the company's Europoort terminal, as part of a EUR27 million (USD29.7 million) investment.

Work on the new berth, which will be 212 m long and have a 6.3 m draft, will begin soon and is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2017. The current berth will then be renewed and both berths are expected to be operational by January 1, 2018.

"We are pleased with the development of the second berth in Rotterdam and of our routes to Harwich and Killingholme in the UK. We believe in the future of Europoort as a strong freight hub on the North Sea and are committed to the development of the terminal as part of a long-term investment plan. The second berth allows us to fully facilitate business development long-term and to meet future customer demand," said Annika Hult, route manager for Stena Line in the North Sea.
