Deposition of silt will be the main driver for next container Giants
With immediate effect is the limit of the previous permitted draft restricted to the depth of 13,50m, the deepening of the river Elbe was hard- fought so big container vessel and the next generation of giants are welcomed. But due to the deposition of silt now it will be impossible for these giants to entry and pass the Elbe with full loaded capacities to transport container to and from the terminals in Hamburg. It has been 1 year ago since the deepening reached the new level of 14,50m due to this issue we will stand in front of a regression. The navigation through the Elbe is nowadays an adventure instead of a pleasure. The current situation remains at least for another year so the resolution of the maritime Government in Germany. Next to this the one year depends again also on different perspective of the current and next fraction in the Hamburg government.
