Paving the way to capacity increase

The Container Plan 22-30 is an ambitious action plan that Port of Antwerp-Bruges is rolling out in phases with its customers and other stakeholders. The goal is to increase the existing container terminal capacity in and around the Antwerp and Zeebrugge platforms. 

 

In the following case study we take a closer look at DP World’s recent investments to highlight their impact on the port’s capacity and efficiency. 

The three new quay cranes can handle vessels carrying up to 24 000 containers (TEU).

Investments in new automatic stacking cranes (ASCs) and quay cranes at DP World will lead to a capacity increase of 30% — without any extra square metres.

  • Increased Capacity: DP World Antwerp Gateway's investment in Automatic Stacking Cranes (ASCs) allows for smarter utilization of existing space and adds 1 million containers to the terminal's annuel capacity.
     
  • Green Technology: The case study highlights DP World's dedication to sustainability since the ASC's operate on 100% green electricity. This strategic decision aligns with the EU's climate goals ('Fit for 55'). 
     
  • Strengthening Port of Antwerp-Bruges: The extended capacity and efficiency enhancements support the growth of individual shipping companies. Simultaneously, they foster a more resilient and dynamic environment for the entire Port of Antwerp-Bruges.
