A Visit to the MV2 Container Terminals

(With extra pictures) In addition to the Pioneering Spirit, SWZ Maritime editor Hugo Dill, also sailed past the automated container terminals during his ferry tour of Maasvlakte 2 (MV2).

Dill went on a tour with the Futureland Ferry to explore MV2. On Tuesday, we published the pictures he took of the Pioneering Spirit undergoing final outfitting at MV2.

Below a photo album of another site he visited: the automated container terminals. It appears that apart from the APMT2 terminal, the RWG terminal is now also fully up and running.
