Dutch-based shipping group Supermaritime has announced the build of a new breakbulk terminal in the Scaldiahaven, Vlissingen.
The new 9-hectare terminal, expected to be operational in the autumn, is expected to significantly increase the handling capacity of general and project cargo, according to port operator, Zeeland Seaports.
The new facility will boast 375 meters of quay in total, suitable for ships with a draught of up to 14 meters.
Supermaritime will make use of both the Kloosterboer and Verbrugge terminals as a basis for the expansion of transhipment operations at the new terminal, including using Verbrugge for vessel handling. In this connection, Verbrugge will, for example, make cranes available with a maximum lifting capacity of 100 tonnes.
The new terminal, located at the mouth of the Western Scheldt, will be operated by Supermaritime’s Dutch subsidiary Supermaritime Nederland b.v.
