APM Terminals Maasvlakte 2 ordered 36 Lift AGV’s, built by Gottwald Port Technology. The vendor selection
of Automated Rail Mounted Gantry cranes and ship-to-shore cranes for Maasvlakte 2 is currently ongoing. This ability to lift the container off the vehicle and place it into a storage rack system is the first of its kind in the world.
APM Terminals is building a new container terminal at Maasvlakte 2 in the Port of Rotterdam opening in November 2014 that promises to set the pace for new terminal design and customer satisfaction levels.
The company estimates show we can deliver 25-50% productivity improvement results vs conventional terminal designs. Civil construction activities are planned to start in June 2012 at APM Terminals Maasvlakte 2.
The arrival of the first set of Lift AGV vehicles is planned for Q1 2013 after which thorough testing and integration with other container handling equipment will start.
Throughput at the present APM Rotterdam Terminal (Maasvlakte 1) was 2.7 million TEU in 2011.The capacity is 3.4 million TEU. The capacity of the first phase of the new terminal at the Port of Rotterdam’s Maasvlakte 2 site is 2.8 million TEU when opened in November 2014.
