Stockholm Norvik Port, a new freight facility in Sweden, has completed construction of its 450 m container quay with less than a year until the port is scheduled to open.
Work to complete the port is moving forward at a rapid pace and upon opening the facility will feature both a container terminal and a roll-on roll-off (ro-ro) terminal.
Johan Wallén, marketing and sales director at Ports of Stockholm, said: “There is a lot of work going on simultaneously in the construction of Stockholm Norvik Port.
“The rail track is being laid and surface water management facilities are being constructed, but for those of us working with shipping the completion of the container quay is an incredibly important milestone.”
The container terminal has a natural depth of 16.5 m and the length of the quay and terminal area are large enough to handle the biggest vessels operating in the Baltic Sea.
Stockholm Norvik Port aims to be an efficient and sustainable transport hub, especially as it benefits from a good location.
Its proximity to one of Europe’s most rapidly growing capital regions along with its short approaches from the fairways, good links to major roads and rail connections are expected to appeal to shipping lines and other customers.
