Frankenbach Container Terminal
Construction of new quay turnaround facilities with an integrated crane track, a railway and a truck handling system on the land side
The former plant at the Bonded and Inland Harbour in Mainz no longer met the standard of a modern container terminal. Its size was exhausted and there was no way to expand it. A new trimodal goods transhipment centre for combined turnaround between inland waterway, railways and road haulage was devised – to be located about 600 metres down the Rhine in the Ingelheimer Aue industrial park. A quay turnaround facility with four berths for ships and an integrated crane track was planned for this expansion phase for a terminal covering about 11 hectares. The quay wall is 520 metres long. On the land side, a railway turnaround system was designed for combined use with four loading sidings, a through-track for the port railway, and a 300-metre-long crane track. Moreover, a truck processing yard was built to support terminal operations and an illuminated operational road network, as well as utilities. The terminal’s designed capacity is about 280,000 TEU a year, making it the largest terminal in the Rhine-Main region.
