Vessel sets container record for Liverpool2

Vessel sets container record for Liverpool2Liverpool2, The Port of Liverpool’s deep water container terminal has broken a new record after the MSC Federica docked and exchanged 5,452 TEUs, the highest number seen from a single vessel in Liverpool since the terminal opened in 2016.

The vessel is part of MSC’s Turkey Canada service which has seen remarkable success and includes calls at Montreal, Liverpool, Sines, Valencia, Barcelona and Tekirdağ amongst other terminals. This service directly links Liverpool to the Far East.

Its arrival signifies the current strength of Liverpool on the global trading stage. In 2016 owner Peel Ports invested £400 million into the container terminal, enabling it to handle the largest ships in the world while maintaining other port operations and productivity levels as normal.

As one of the most operationally efficient and modern in Northern Europe, the deep-water terminal offers ‘future-proof’ facilities, enabling global shipping firms’ reliable access to major import and centres at the heart of the UK.

David Huck, Peel Ports managing director, said: “This record is a testament to the investment we have put in to ensure ‘state of the art’ technology, including our five ship to shore cranes (STS) and twelve cantilever rail mounted gantry cranes (CRMG) to help make our world-class staff as efficient as possible.

“At difficult times like these, businesses want to know that their supply chains are able to cope with the increased demand and this demonstrates that the Port of Liverpool is ready to meet their needs.”

Peel Ports, in conjunction with global terminal business Terminal Investment Ltd Sarl (TiL), is continuing to develop the deep-water terminal.

The next phase of growth has seen the arrival of a further three STS cranes which are being commissioned and will soon see a further 10 CRMG cranes which will increase the capacity of the terminal significantly, making it capable of managing the unloading of two 380m vessels simultaneously.

Work on this second phase of the project has already started and is expected to be completed during 2021.
