       4月22日,美国北卡罗来纳州港区的威尔明顿港迎来了首艘12000 TEU集装箱船。
 
       该船名为“Kota Pekarang”,是该港靠泊箱位数最大的集装箱船。这艘集装箱船由总部位于以色列的班轮公司以星航运(ZIM)和2M联盟合作运营,负责亚洲-威尔明顿航线。
 
       北卡罗来纳州港口执行董事Paul J.Cozza表示:“这对北卡罗来纳州港区和威尔明顿港而言,具有里程碑意义。”
 
       “这表明我们已经准备好迎接大型船舶,并证实了我们现在已有能力接卸靠泊东海岸港口的大型集装箱船。”
 
       在北卡罗来纳州港区第三台新巴拿马型起重机抵达之后,该艘集装箱船也来到了威尔明顿。该起重机于四月初运至该港,是港口2亿美元资本更新改造计划的一部分。该计划旨在扩大威尔明顿港的基础设施,以备迎接14000 TEU的最大集装箱船,该船目前挂靠在美国东海岸。
 
       北卡罗来纳州港区的这项基础设施改善计划包括拓宽转船池、增加泊位、购买新型巴拿马型起重机和全面检修威尔明顿港的集装箱码头。这次码头改造将使该港口的年吞吐量翻一番,达到120万TEU。同时,冷藏集装箱处理量也增加了三倍,冷藏插座容量达到1000个。

North Carolina Ports Welcomes Its Largest Boxship
 
North Carolina Ports made history on April 22 by welcoming its first-ever 12,000 TEU vessel to the Port of Wilmington.
The ship, Kota Pekarang, is so far the largest capacity-wise vessel to call the port. The containership is operated by Israel-based liner company ZIM in partnership with the 2M Alliance which links Asia to Wilmington.
 
“This is a monumental milestone for North Carolina Ports and the Port of Wilmington,” Paul J. Cozza, Executive Director, North Carolina Ports, said.
 
“This is proof of concept that we are big ship ready and capable of handling some of the largest container vessels calling East Coast ports today,”
 
The ship’s visit to Wilmington comes on the heels of the arrival of North Carolina Ports’ third neo-Panamax crane. The third crane arrived in early April as part of the organization’s USD 200 million capital improvements plan aimed at expanding the Port of Wilmington’s infrastructure to accommodate the 14,000 TEU vessels – the largest ships currently calling the United States East Coast.
 
NC Ports’ infrastructure improvements plan includes a wider turning basin, berth enhancements, new neo-Panamax cranes and an overhaul of Wilmington’s container terminal. The terminal renovations will double the port’s annual throughput capacity to 1.2 million TEUs and triple its refrigerated container capacity to 1,000 plugs.
