Strength in depth for Antwerp

[ March 2, 2021   //   ]

Antwerp was visited by its deepest draught vessel ever when the MSC Regulus, drawing 15.7 metres entered the port on Sunday 28 February. The trial was part of a programme that will see the draught incrementally increased from 15.5 metres to 16 metres – part of a plan to ensure that the port will be ready to receive the very largest container ships in the future. The extra half a metre draught will support an extra 1,000teu capacity per vessel
