World’s Largest Container Ship Calls Wilhelmshaven on Her Maiden Voyage

The OOCL Hong Kong recently called EUROGATE Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven. The world’s largest container ship has space for 21,413 TEUs, is 399.9 metres long and 58.8 metres wide. The OOCL Hong Kong operates on the Ocean Alliance “Asia Europe Service Loop 1 (LL1)” service. She will stay until July 3rd and will then depart for Felixstowe.

Michael Blach, Chairman of the EUROGATE Group Management Board says: “We are proud to be able to welcome the world’s largest container ship to EUROGATE Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven. In Wilhelmshaven, we have optimum conditions for handling the new container behemoths with a transport capacity of up to 22,000 containers quickly and efficiently. Today’s port call of the Ocean Alliance is not the consortium’s first, but certainly the most impressive. We hope there will be many more and expect them to generate new impulses for the container port in Wilhelmshaven. We are already, after just one month, seeing positive developments for hinterland transports and additional services. For example, in the month of May alone, the number of rail containers at 2,083 units was more than double (+128%) that of this time last year. We hope this trend continues.”

Jan Schmahl, OOCL’s Managing Director North Europe Group says: “It is a special honour for us to greet the world’s largest container ship here in Northern Europe. Our series of new builds with six modern, efficient ships with a capacity of 21,413 TEUs is a milestone for OOCL. The Wilhelmshaven location offers us optimum conditions for our new ships. Demand from our customers to ship their consignments via Wilhelmshaven on our LL1 service is constantly growing. Besides the high export demand, we are especially pleased to see a significant increase in the number of customers wishing to use Wilhelmshaven for import shipments. With the already realised as well as future improvements to the hinterland connections, we still see a high shipping potential that can be tapped into in Wilhelmshaven. All this means we can look ahead to the future with confidence.”
