Berthing and marine trials have started at Liverpool 2, the delayed £300m container terminal in the Mersey which was due to open in December 2015.
The first ship, MV MSC Nederland, visited the Peel Ports facility last week and will be followed by a variety of cargo handling tests throughout July and August. The testing is being done by Mediterranean Shipping Company.
As well as 3,007-container capacity MV MSC Nederland, four other MSC vessels will be used during the trials, MV MSC Santhya, MV MSC Koroni, MV MSC Sandra and MV MSC Alyssa. :wink:

Love looking at these cranes when they are all lit up at night in the distance. It's like looking at the horizon of a Sci-Fi movie.

More lights please...

I often have my dinner near those cranes in my wagon when delivering forklift trucks to the likes of Stanton Grove.
I see some great boats on the river, bonus of my job I see the good and slightly not so good sights of our fair isle :wink:

Come on Steve, after all those years at Marchwood and you still refer to ships as boats? :D

Here is a picture of them taken outside the Nova Centre in Prestatyn. Hope you can see them, they were very clear by the naked eye.
