About Arcelor Mittal

The All-Weather Terminal (AWT) handles more than two million tons of high-quality steel coils annually.
It is located adjacent to the site of Arcelor Mittal’s steel plant in Ghent, Belgium. AWT-Ghent was established to store and load steel coils into river vessels and ocean-going vessels in a covered facility. AWT-Ghent has chosen Euroports to operate the terminal for a period of at least 20 years.

Did you know Arcelor mittal produced 70 million tons of steel in 2021?


After a careful study of different crane types and brands, Euroports chose Mantsinen cranes through their local distributor Heavy Handling and crane rental company Goeyvaerts-R which rents the machines with a 24/7 technical service to the terminal. The AWP is an innovative solution that had to be accompanied by an innovative and efficient logistics chain. When a ship is en route to load, the coils are transferred from the warehouse to the adjacent covered quay. Semi-gantry cranes pre-sort the coils into the specific loading sequence. These allow the Mantsinen cranes to utilize their full potential and load the ships in record time.
