Pile-driving start for the new Quay 66

BREMERHAVEN. Bremen’s Senator for Science and Ports, Dr Claudia Schilling, together with bremenports Managing Director, Robert Howe, gave the symbolic green light for the new Quay 66 in November. Costpoint: 17.7 million Euros shared by the state and federal government. “This construction measure is of immense importance for the smooth running of the port,” states Schilling. Following several accidents, the quay, which was put into operation in 1965, could no longer be deemed stable. The sheet pile wall was last damaged in 2017 in an accident involving a car transporter.
