Project to Build a New Container Terminal

Press Release
Wednesday, February 06, 2013

The European Union will co-finance to the tune of €5 million from the TEN-T Program a project to build a state-of-the-art multimodal container terminal at the Port of Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

 

The future Rotterdam World Gateway (RWG) terminal will aim to have the highest modal shift ratio for a container terminal in Europe.


The project, which was selected for funding under the 2011 TEN-T Annual Call, involves the construction of the new Rotterdam World Gateway (RWG) terminal at the Port of Rotterdam. Once completed, the terminal will use an optimal layout for processing high volumes of freight efficiently between all transport modes, focusing on the facilities needed for the transhipment of goods to/from the port by rail and inland waterways.


Concretely, the project will support the:
 

  • Construction of a barge stacking terminal with total stacking capacity of 9,616 Twenty-foot Equivalent Units (TEU)
  • building of a dedicated barge terminal equipped with three barge quay cranes to service the water side, enabling a higher water-to-water transhipment capacity
  • completion of a dedicated rail terminal expected to handle up to 246,750 TEU per year by the end of 2014.


The overall modal shift objective of project is to reduce the road share of hinterland transport to and from RWG from 50% to 35% by 2016.


The project will be managed by the Trans-European Transport Network Executive Agency and is set to be completed by the end of 2014.
