Tenerife, Spain (PortSEurope) September 13, 2017 – Spanish company Obrascon Huarte Lain S.A. (OHL) has started container transhipment operations at Tenerife port’s Tenerife Container Terminal (TCTenerife).
The operations began with the arrival of two ships of the multinational company Maersk, the Maersk Guayaquil and the Maersk Genoa, on September 5 and 11, and represent a significant news for the harbour, since it handles vessels with such characteristics for the first time.
This is an opportunity for the development of the port, resulting from the effort made by TCTenerife and the port authority (Autoridad Portuaria Santa Cruz de Tenerife) to capture transhipment traffic.
TCTenerife ensures that it has sufficient installed capacity to handle both this new transhipment service, which it expects to stabilise in the coming months, as well as the services of the various shipping companies that currently operate at the harbour.
