Le Havre to open new container terminal in early 2012

The Port of Le Havre has announced it will open its new container terminal in early 2012. Located in the west of Port 2000, the new TNMSC terminal will extend along 1,400 m of quay.

The 1,400 m quay, developed by France’s Perrigault group, has required an investment of €160m. The terminal will be used by Mediterranean Shipping Co (MSC) and will enable vessels of up to 14,000 TEU to call at the wharf.

At present, MSC vessels berth at the Bougainville quay at the Port of Le Havre, but as of next year its vessels will begin to berth at the new terminal. The first of four berths is set to be completed in early 2012, with the remaining berths expected to open by the end of the year.

Stephan Snijders, General Manager of MSC France, said: "The new facilities will enable our biggest vessels to benefit from a guaranteed draught of 16 m. This will bring, without any doubt, business increase and development of MSC in Le Havre."
