APM Terminals (AMPT) Kalundborg in Denmark has completed one year of operations as it received the first vessel call on 1 March 2021.
Fully owned by APMT, the container terminal that has a yearly capacity of 50,000 TEU is offering approximately 12 hours shorter steam times by sea, while it is also helping remove heavy trucks out of the Copenhagen traffic.
During the year, the Danish terminal gained importance as an alternative to the capital of Denmark, given that the majority of containers discharged in the latter are transported onwards to other destinations in the country.
Furthermore, the terminal offers 24/7 operations, truck turn times in an average of 10 minutes, and a comprehensive service offering, including maintenance and repair and reefer capabilities, according to a statement.
Located on an area of 50,000 m2 in North West Zealand, APM Terminals Kalundborg has a berth length of 500 metres, a maximum draft of 15 metres and 100 reefer plugs. It also disposes of three cranes, two mobile cranes with a lifting capacity of 100 tons each, and a third capable of lifting 150 tons.
The terminal has also adopted cleaner fuel solutions, selecting gas-to-liquids (GTL) fuel for its reach stackers and terminal tractors, allowing the use of cleaner fuel in conventional diesel engines and producing significantly less smoke.
