Rotterdam opens heavy lift hub

September 2 - The Offshore & Heavy Lift Centre at the Broekman breakbulk terminal in the Port of Rotterdam has been officially opened.

The facility connects directly to a quay that is specifically designed for offshore and heavy lift cargo handling.

The centre is ideal for transporting complex and heavy cargo to the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, France, Switzerland and beyond, explained the port authority's business developer for breakbulk, Robert Jan Timmers.

Meanwhile, the port authority also confirmed that Edwin Lammers is now in position as director of its breakbulk department, and with this appointment the port authority has again made breakbulk a separate department, which not only focuses on the handling and storage of project cargo and heavy lift, forest products, steel, non-ferrous metals and cars, but also on the sectors of fruit and distribution.

In an official statement, the port authority added that Lammers' appointment is in line with its aim to make the Port of Rotterdam Europe's number one breakbulk port, which is currently claimed by the Port of Antwerp.

Having spent the past six years as commercial manager at the Sohar Industrial Port Company, Lammers made an important contribution to the development of the port of Sohar, where throughput rose from nothing in 2003 to 50 million tonnes by 2014, so certainly has the credentials to help turn that aim into reality.
