The twins of reality

Real objects and processes are increasingly being digitalised. How can such digital twins help us to better understand and shape the world?

The world's largest container ship calls at HHLA Terminal Burchardkai

The mega-vessel "HMM Algeciras" is passing the river Elbe towards Hamburg. With a capacity of 24,000 standard containers it is currently the largest container ship in the world. During its stay in Hamburg HHLA handeled some 13,600 standard containers.

New container gantry cranes on the Elbe

Two new container gantry cranes on their way to HHLA Container Terminal Burchardkai (CTB): together they weigh almost 5,000 tons, so the special ship “Zhen Hua 26” was the best way to bring them from China to Hamburg.

Spectacular images from HHLA Container Terminal Burchardkai: First, a special ship brought the giant container gantries to Hamburg, then they had to be pulled onto the quay edge in a complex process.
