Successful dock lock

BREMEN. In November, bremenports announced that the container ship “Al Kharj” had completed its stay at the Kaiserhafen’s west quay and had left the port. In order to tow the 306-metre-long carrier through the Kaiserschleuse back onto the River Weser, a dock lock had to be performed. This had to be done, because the ship was longer than the lock. For a successful passage, both lock gates had to be open at the same time and the water level in the Weser and in the port had to be approximately identical. The dock lock for the “Al Kharj” took just under 40 minutes.
