Piraeus Container Terminal – Adverse Weather Conditions

Please be informed that the port of Piraeus in Greece currently suffers from bad weather conditions with strong north winds, low temperature, snowfall, and ice during the night hours, since the afternoon of Sunday, February 14th, 2021.

Additionally, as reported by the terminal operator, a complete stop of all operations in the terminal was caused by a general electricity blackout in the evening of Sunday, February 14th, 2021. The issue was slowly resolved after a couple of hours, which resulted in low performance in the terminal.

Based on a latest weather forecast, the same conditions are expected also for the whole day, Monday February 15th, 2021, and Tuesday February 16th 2021.

Therefore, general operation delays are expected, affecting the vessels already under operation and the expected new arrivals.

We regret these unusual circumstances, actually beyond our control, and thank you in advance for your patience and understanding!
We will keep you informed on further developments in due course.
