Successful test AWT4

8 Aug 2017

There is no quiet summer In the construction and development of the fourth All Weather Terminal. While most people are on vacation, our customer VCK in Amsterdam is still working hard. The 28th of July the overhead crane, which was placed on the 26th of April, was tested and adjusted with test weights up to 62.5 tons (= 125%). The All Weather Terminal will be in production at the end of August. 

This new covered transshipment terminal will have a 30.5 metre entry width and will be 100 metres long. The terminal will get an overhead crane that is able to lift 50 tonnes. The overhead crane will have a span of 46.5 metres. This terminal will be the largest of the four terminals that VCK will soon operate. The terminal will become operational as of 1 August 2017.

VCK is active in the transport sector. VCK's Scandia Terminal in the port of Amsterdam is a multimodal port terminal that specializes in handling roll-on / roll-off ships and Lift-on / Lift-off ships.
