Port of Gothenburg continues major investments in 2016

In 2016, the Swedish port’s most significant investments are geared towards its new terminal, the Port of Gothenburg Logistics Park, a new truck entrance at the port and new terminal surfaces at its container terminal.

   The Port of Gothenburg, situated along the west coast of Sweden, plans to invest in various infrastructure improvement projects throughout 2016.
   Four significant projects the port is investing in this year include its new terminal, the Port of Gothenburg Logistics Park, a new truck entrance at the port and new terminal surfaces at the container terminal, Port of Gothenburg Vice President, Communications Cecilia Carlsson told American Shipper.
   Construction for the new terminal will commence later this year and it is expected to be operational in five to eight years from now, Carlsson said. Roll-on/roll-off and container traffic will be handled at the terminal, which will be situated in Arendal, just beside the port. The terminal will be connected to a railway system and its berths will provide onshore power supply, according to the port’s website.
   The Port of Gothenburg’s new truck entrance, named “Port Entry,” will be completed in May 2016.
   “The new truck entrance will allow us to further enhance security procedures and it will facilitate traffic flows to and from the terminals,” Port of Gothenburg Vice President, Port Development Arvid Guthed said. The project cost about 40 million Swedish krona (U.S. $4.75 million) and was funded by the terminal operators, the port said.
   In addition, the port will continue to invest in the Port of Gothenburg Logistics Park. The Port of Gothenburg, NCC, Prologis, Castellum Eklandia and Bockasjö have joined forces to provide logistics and warehousing facilities at the park. The port’s part will be prepared in 2016 with basic infrastructure, and the entire park will be built step by step over a ten-year period, Carlsson said.
   The resurfacing project at the container terminal, which has been ongoing for years, will be completed in Spring 2016, Carlsson said.
   In addition, APM Terminals, which operates the container terminal at the port, just completed an 800 million Swedish krona investment program. Some of these investments included new super post-Panamax cranes, a new railway terminal and new straddle carriers. The terminal features 900 meters of quay length and 10 container cranes, five of which are super-post-Panamax cranes.
