Deep-water container port

The JadeWeserPort, deep-water container port in Wilhelmshaven, is one of the biggest North German infrastructure projects of the past 50 years.
Even container ships with a length of up to 430 m and draught of up to 16.5 m can moor at Germany’s only deep-water port without waiting times and irrespective of the tide. The 1,725 m quay enables the simultaneous handling of up to four large container ships.
The 130 hectare terminal has a shoreside transhipment terminal for combined transport. This is adjoined by the 160 hectare logistic zone with goods transport centre. The EUROGATE Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven assumed operation in September 2012 and will have a handling capacity of 2.7 million standard containers a year.
