The largest container vessel in Koper so far


At the end of last week Luka Koper Container terminal moored the largest container vessel that has ever called Koper. The “Ital Laguna”, whose over-all length is 294 meters, can carry up to 5,100 TEUs and is operated by the Evergreen Corporation,. The ship provides a direct service from Far East to Koper and other Adriatic ports.

In the first two months of 2008 the Container terminal handled 55,441 TEUs, which represents a 26% increase compared to the same period last year. This figure also represents almost 20% of the 2007 total container throughput (305,648 TEU).

The new container quayside - construction works are in full swing - is hardly anticipated by the Container terminal and its customers. After the accomplishment the terminal will be capable to berth vessels with a capacity up to 8,000 TEUs.
