The new Klaipedos Smelte Container Terminal (KSCT) at the Port of Klaipeda in Lithuania received and loaded its first container ship on August 30, 2006. More than 40 containers were loaded onto the Norrland, operated by Hamburg-based Team Lines, using Liebherr LHM 400 Litronic cranes.

Debut for Klaipedos Smelte terminal

Opened on July 24, the terminal plans to reach an annual container capacity of 200,000 teu within a few years. KSCT is capable of accepting ships of 2,000 teu and larger, with a draught of up to 11.5 m, and has 550 m of newly constructed berth dedicated to such vessels.

The port has a container storage area of 7 ha (which it plans to extend) and 9,000 sq m of dry warehouses available for stuffing and stripping operations. There are also specialised warehouses with a total capacity of 14,000 sq m to store frozen fish and meat and fresh fruit and vegetables.
