Cuxport's berth 4 gets go ahead

February 25 - A memorandum of understanding (MOU) has been signed for the construction of berth 4 at the Cuxport terminal in Cuxhaven, Germany.

The MOU was signed by Olaf Lies, the Lower Saxony minister of economic affairs, labour and transport, and the managing directors of Cuxport, Andreas Schmidt and Hans-Peter Zint, and will see Cuxport gain another 290 m of pier alongside water deep enough for sea-going vessels, as well as about 85,000 sq m of space for port handling operations.

"The construction of berth 4 at Cuxhaven will create the conditions for further growth in the port sector on the North Sea coast and therefore pave the way for new jobs," said Lies.

'Based on the excellent development and forecasts for this business, particularly in the ro-ro and offshore logistics sectors, we assume that the newly created capacity at our multipurpose terminal will soon be put to full use," added Zint.

Once the construction work has been completed - scheduled for 2017 - the area will be used for port handling and providing temporary storage for goods prior to their shipment by sea or distribution further inland.
