HHLA Container Terminal Altenwerder, recognized worldwide as state-of-the-art, is the world’s first container handling facility to be certified climate-neutral. With its high degree of automation and its compact layout, HHLA’s newest terminal sets the scene for the future of container handling. The most advanced technology and innovative EDP system ensure efficient discharging and loading of large container ships, especially. The volume of standard containers has grown steeply since the terminal was taken into service in summer, 2002. CTA includes Europe's biggest container rail terminal for intermodal services, Kombi-Transeuropa Terminal Hamburg (KTH).
The goal is to integrate the battery capacities of the automated guided container transport vehicles (AGVs) at CTA as flexible storage units that contribute to the grid stability of the German energy network.
