A 500-metre stretch of the Amazonehaven port basin at Maasvlakte in the Netherlands will be deepened from 16.65 metres to 17.45 metres to enhance accessibility for containerships at the ECT Delta Terminal.

The project will be carried out by the Port of Rotterdam Authority in partnership with Hutchison Ports ECT Rotterdam and is expected to be completed in the second half of November 2020.

Following completion of the project, the partners will deliberate whether to conduct similar deepening works in another area of the terminal in preparation for the construction of two additional 500-metre berths.
