The fairway adaptation of the Elbe is one of the Hamburg Port Authority’s most important projects in 2020. A lot needs to be done to ensure that larger ships can continue to come to Hamburg in the future. For the passing box, for example, the fairway will be widened in part.
This will change the course of the approaching ships, which will thus require two new leading lights. There are also ecological compensation measures.
Billwerder Island, for example, a shallow water area with islands and tidal creeks will be created for a protected plant species. More information on the current status of the fairway adaptation of the Elbe can be found in part 2 of this PORT IS WHAT WE DO series.
