The Port of Le Havre Authority in France is planning to build a $182m terminal that will be used as a transfer platform for the trans-shipment of containers and trailers between rail and barges.

The authority said the multi-modal terminal can handle up to 500,000 intermodal transport units (ITU) and includes a reserve capacity for long-term expansion up to 850,000ITU.

The terminal is expected to handle 15-25% of the cargo by 2020 and eliminate 500,000t of carbon emissions a year.

It will be equipped with two 656ft river berths, four or five gantry cranes, a rail yard with eight tracks, electrified rail sidings to handle mainline trains and a storage area.

The authority said construction of the terminal is scheduled to start in March 2011 with completion due in the second half of 2013.
