backWilhelmshaven - the location for your business
Wilhelmshaven is Germany’s only deep water port (LAT – 18 m). This is why the container hub “JadeWeserPort” – Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven (CTW) is being constructed here. The largest container ships – including the Triple-E class (18,000 TEU) with draughts down to 16.50 m can dock here fully loaded independent of the tide at any time of night or day.
Wilhelmshaven is an energy hub, and a location for the chemical industry and state-of-the-art maritime technology. Science is also at home here with research institutes for marine biology, marine chemistry, marine engineering and wind power, not to mention the Jade University.
