19 May 2023 | The first phase of the renewal of the Europa Terminal is underway. To keep offering the same level of service during the extensive works and to continue to encourage the modal shift, a new barge quay has been constructed. Operational as of today, it is temporarily creating additional mooring space for inland navigation. The quayside and terminal upgrade, which will take about ten years, will ensure that the latest generation of container ships can continue to call at Antwerp.

12 May 2023 | PSA Belgium recently took part in the sixth edition of the Flemish Port Day, organised by the Flemish government and the Port of Antwerp-Bruges. Held on 7 May, the event drew more than 85,000 enthusiastic visitors from all ages, with numerous activities organised for participants in the Flemish ports of Antwerp, Zeebrugge, Ostend and Ghent under a collective theme of “Innovation”.

The Antwerp 10 Miles, which takes the more than 37,000 participants through Antwerp’s beautiful city centre, was a great opportunity for our PSA team to not only break personal records but also Be There and Play with their colleagues. And this year, they got to play in the rain. 

21 April 2023 | Today, we welcomed the largest container ship to date, MSC Tessa, to MPET. True to a longstanding tradition at MSC, the ship was named after a prominent company figure or family member.

30 March 2023 | Antwerp Terminal Services (ATS), a joint venture between MSC PSA Europe Terminal (MPET) and PSA Antwerp (PSAA), today officially launched the world’s first H2 dual fuel straddle carrier in the Port of Antwerp during a brief ceremony. Using state-of-the-art H2 dual fuel combustion engine technology, developed by cleantech company CMB.TECH and integrated into a straddle carrier with the support of ATS, the machine runs on a mix of hydrogen and diesel. It can therefore play an important role in reducing terminal greenhouse gas emissions.
