Baltic Hub handled two ocean container ships at the same time
An unusual situation took place at the Baltic Hub container terminal in Gdańsk: transshipments were carried out simultaneously on two large ocean container ships. The last time this happened was in 2019.
Baltic Hub regularly handles two ships, however, it is not often that two ocean container ships moor at the quays of this terminal. On February 7, OOCL United Kingdom called at the T2 berth. This ship, built in 2017 and flying the flag of Hong Kong, is 399.87 meters long and 58.8 meters wide, making it one of the largest container ships sailing on the Baltic Sea, capable of carrying 21,413 TEUs.
On February 8, MSC Jade, built in 2016 and sailing under the flag of Liberia, moored at the T1 quay. The container ship is 398.45 m long and 59.07 m wide, and has a load capacity of 19,224 TEU. This means that for 2 days at the Baltic Hub terminal, transshipments were made on two almost 400 m long colossi, and at the same time smaller feeder vessels called there.
Baltic Hub regularly serves large ships belonging to ocean carriers. The handling capacity of this terminal will be increased thanks to the construction of the new T3 quay. You will be able to meet representatives of the Gdańsk deepwater terminal during the INTERMODAL IN POLAND 2023 conference, of which Baltic Hub is a partner.
