TTS to deliver a second Linkspan to Stena Europoort
Stena Line has awarded TTS Marine AB the contract to deliver a second Linkspan to their Europoort terminal for bridging the rolling cargo between shore and ship.
Stena Line and Port of Rotterdam announced last year their collaboration to build a second berth at the Stena Line terminal at Europoort prior to the existing berth being renewed, as part of an extensive investment program designed to meet future customer demand.
Today the Linkspan in the old berth allows one lane traffic only while the new Linkspan is a state of the art solution for efficient loading and unloading of rolling cargo between the ship and terminal with possibility of three lane traffic.
The length of the new Linkspan is about 18 meters with a width of 22 meters at the outer end, where the vessel ramp will be resting. It is maneuvered by dual hydraulically actuated cylinders on each side.
Stena Line and Port of Rotterdam is in progress building the new berth in the port and TTS Marine AB is delivering the Linkspan for this berth as well. The new berth is expected to be completed and in operation in the first quarter of 2017.
When the new berth is in operation the old berth will be renewed and the plan is to be operational by January 1st 2018. This will give Stena Line much greater flexibility to service the growing freight market.
