Successful blasting of the bridge at the South Quay

EMDEN. Everything went to plan when Bridge 11 was blown up at the end of July. The project team led by Christian Best, Project Manager, NPorts in Emden, was responsible for the meticulous preparation. Bridge 11, the last remaining transhipment bridge on the South Quay, buckled almost gracefully and hit the ground after two consecutive blasts. The facility, built in 1976 for breakbulk goods, is now being further dismantled. As from this autumn, a new port area covering around 1,600 square metres will be available for handling and storage.
