JadeWeser Port, Wilhelmshaven
Deep water port for mega-carriers

Shipping companies are increasingly using mega-carriers with capacities of over 10,000 TEU and unloading draughts of 16 m or more. The deep water port "JadeWeserPort" accommodates the needs of modern international container transport and offers many benefits, such as a tide-independent channel depth of up to 18 m, a short approach of approx. 23 nautical miles and a generous turning area alongside the quay. Four new mega-carriers can dock along the 1,725m-long container quay, and are simultaneously serviced by up to 17 container cranes at one terminal.

  • Total area of the port: approx. 360 hectares
  • Length of sheet piling wall: approx. 2,500 m
  • Length of perimeter dams: approx. 3,100 m
  • Sand dredging: approx. 43 million m³
  • Total steel (excluding reinforcement): approx. 80,000 t
  • Total concrete: approx. 95,000 m³
  • Total reinforcement steel: approx. 13,000 t
