HMM Algeciras003The first tug boat needs to be attached the very beginning of the Hamburg port area.

HMM Algeciras009The harbor pilot is entering shortly after entry in the port area as well.

HMM Algeciras022Even though the draft was only 12.6 metres, her deck load with up tp 9 tiers of highcube containers is still very impressive.

HMM Algeciras023On the picture you can clearly see the construction of a new lighthouse which will be necessary due to the river Elbe deepening.

HMM Algeciras025Upon arrival in Hamburg the she must turn into Waltershofer Hafen. This time she is assisted by four tug boats as the turning basin is very narrow.
