Wilhelmshaven Welcomes World’s Largest Container Ship

EUROGATE recently welcomed the world’s largest container ship at its container terminal in Wilhelmshaven. The “OOCL Germany” docked for the first time at EUROGATE Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven on her maiden voyage.

The “OOCL Germany” is the second in a series of six ships in OOCL’s G class. We already welcomed her sister ship, the “OOCL Hong Kong”, at EUROGATE Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven on 2 July. The “OOCL Germany” operates on the Asia-North Europe Loop 1 (LL1) and departs from Wilhelmshaven for Felixstowe on Monday night.

“Although we are in the meantime witnessing the world’s largest container vessels at Wilhelmshaven on a weekly basis, each occasion is still something very special,” says Mikkel Andersen, Managing Director of EUROGATE Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven. “We are delighted that the world’s largest container ship, with a capacity of 21,413 TEUs, is calling at Wilhelmshaven. We see this as a sign that our customer OOCL is very happy with the performance of the container terminal.”
