Rhenus Port Logistics invests in sustainable transshipment terminal in Basel
Rhenus Port Logistics is investing in a new tri-modal transhipment terminal at the Port of Switzerland, in Basel-Kleinhüningen Switzerland. Construction of Terminal 4 should be completed in December 2023.
A photovoltaic system is being installed on the roof, which will generate around 2.4 million kilowatts of electricity per year, thereby covering the entire annual electricity consumption of Rhenus Port Logistics at the site.
Construction of Terminal 4 will replace both Terminal 8 (Satram-Halle) and Terminal 7 on the North Dock. Terminal 4 will comprise five hall sections with a total area of around 7,300 square metres. One hall selection will be completely isolated for the transshipment and storage of sensitive steel products.
Equipped at the site will include five cranes with carrying capacities of up to 32 tonnes, excavators, forklifts, a rail receiving pit, modern rail and road weighbridges, and wireless local-area network (WLAN) and video surveillance systems.
