Hutchison Ports and Terminal Investment Limited (TIL), Mediterranean Shipping Company’s (MSC) terminal investment firm, have announced their intention to construct a new container terminal in the Port of Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

Dubbed Maasvlakte I, the new container terminal will be constructed in Europahaven, where the north side of the Hutchison Ports ECT Delta terminal and Hutchison Ports Delta II are currently situated.

Both locations are part of the new container terminal and are anticipated to support MSC’s further growth.

The Port of Rotterdam Authority will redevelopment the quay walls as part of this project.

Both entities will be involved in the development of the new terminal, which will be launched in phases, with the first phase of operation expected to commence in 2027.

With a total length of 2.6km, the new terminal will feature five deep-sea berths.

TIL CEO Ammar Kanaan said: “We are committed to the development of this new state-of-the-art mega terminal in Rotterdam. Sustainability is a top priority for TIL and MSC.

“As the world’s largest container shipping company, we have a crucial role in creating a sustainable future. The possibility of utilising shore power is therefore an important consideration for the development of the new terminal.”
