Fast Ferry service Europoort discontinued
« on: January 05, 2022, 11:24:41 AM »
Rather abruptly the Fast Ferry service between Hook of Holland and several stops on the Maasvlakte, has been cancelled. There were disagreements about how to finance the obvious loss of the service and then the plug was pulled late December 2021. The ferry provided an excellent opportunity to shoot ships at the MOT terminal, the LNG terminal, parts of the MSC container terminal and of late also the 5th Petroleum dock, after a new terminal near Firefighting Training center was opened about a year ago. It would also have helped shooting ships at the yet to be opened HES oil storage facility, opposite EMO.

The Nieuwe Prins will be greatly missed, and fittingly on her last day of service she sufferred a technical breakdown.

As a regular user I am much saddened by the loss of this service. A short cut to places like Oostvorne with my bike. It will be much missed when we return (if ever) to the Netherlands with our bikes.
