HAMBURG, Mar 8 (FAM) – The Hamburg Port Authority (HPA) officially completed the project “Redesigning the Entrance to the Vorhafen Harbour Basin” offering more manoeuvring space for big ships, faster berth assignment and improved safety of navigation.

The widened Vorhafen basin access benefits both container shipping and cruise shipping. For one, the tidal (time) windows available to inbound and outbound ships are longer now and the manoeuvring space for big ships in the Tollerort area has increased.
