Terminal operator Sea-invest has officially inaugurated the Antwerp Container Terminal (ACT) in the Delwaide dock.
The container facility covers a total area of 63 hectares with 900 meters of quay on the south side and 150 meters at the head end of the dock. The terminal is equipped with three gantry cranes, three mobile cranes and 350 reefer connections.
“With this terminal we are writing a new chapter of our history in the port of Antwerp. Sea-invest started here with bulk activities, then expanded into fruit handling, and several years ago we diversified into tank storage. With ACT we are aiming at pure container activities,”Johan Claes, Managing Director, Sea-invest, commented.
