Haifa welcomes the largest ship ever to dock in Israel E-mail

The 13,092-TEU container ship Maersk Elba arrived at the Carmel Terminal at Haifa Port on 2 February. It was operated on by four STS cranes with an average productivity of 136 containers per ship hour.

The Maersk Elba is part of the weekly service operated by the 2M Alliance of Maersk and MSC. It links the ports of South Korea, China and Singapore to Haifa and continues on to Adriatic ports.

The arrival of the vessel inducted Haifa into the exclusive club of ports capable of handling high-capacity 14,000TEU ships. But the next generation of ships of 18,000 TEU and above will not be able to call in Israel until further development takes place. Five new cranes have been built recently at the Carmel Terminal, in preparation for the facility’s handling of vessels like the Maersk Elba. These were constructed on the dock and join six other STS cranes.
