Biggest ship yet for Nigeria’s Onne

[ December 19, 2013   //   ]

The 4,500teu Maersk Copenhagen became the biggest ship to visit the eastern Nigerian port of Onne in Port Harcourt on 3 December when she called at APM Terminals’ West Africa Container Terminal (WACT). It was a trial stop for Maersk Line’s weekly Far East-West Africa (FEW2) service, which is comprised of 22 West Africa-Maximum (Waf-Max) sized vessels equipped with on-board cranes. WACT, which is owned and operated by APM Terminals, has a current capacity of 212,000teu, and will handle 210,000teu in 2013. Volumes at Onne have tripled in the past five years.
