The Delta Barge Feeder Terminal (DBF) at the Port of Rotterdam is specially designed to handle inland vessels and feeder vessels. The 800-meter (2,625-foot) quay wall spans the width of the Delta peninsula.
ECT expects to receive the first three quay cranes in March 2008. They can be operational two months later.
In this first phase the capacity of DBF is 300,000 twenty-foot-equivalent units (TEU). The final capacity will be three times that. Total cost is expected to be € 145 million ($197 million), of which one third is for the quay wall and the remainder is for basic infrastructure.
