Euromax Terminal, a new deep-water container complex in the Port of Rotterdam, was officially opened Friday.

Euromax is located at Rotterdam’s Maasvlakte area directly on the North Sea. It has a total area of 84 hectares with a quay length of 1,500 meters, and will offer an annual capacity of 2.3 million TEUs when the first phase of development is completed in June 2009. When all four phases of development are complete, Euromax will have a total capacity of 5.6 million TEUs.
