Gothenburg Quay Completed Ahead of Schedule

Construction of the 900-meter quay at the Port of Gothenburg has been completed three months ahead of schedule thanks to close collaboration between the Port of Gothenburg, the terminal operator APM Terminals Gothenburg and the contractors.

The quay is now ready to receive large ocean-going container ships. The Port of Gothenburg has invested SEK 450 million in the new quay.

Mats Ransgård, project manager at the Port of Gothenburg, said: “We now have a strong, durable quay at the container terminal that will last for up to one hundred years.”

Construction of the quay was carried out by the Port of Gothenburg as part of a partnering venture with three other companies: Skanska Grundläggning AB, Skanska Väg och Anläggning AB and Sweco. Wickensbergs Byggadministration AB, COWI and the container terminal operator, APM Terminals Gothenburg, were also involved.

The old quay was demolished down to the basic piling. A new quay was then built using a 30-40 centimeter concrete slab. The quay has been reinforced to meet the specifications and requirements for using super post panamax cranes, the world’s largest cranes for loading and unloading containers.
