Stockholm: Port of Vartahamnen Officially Inaugurated

The new Port of Vartahamnen and Varta Terminal were officially inaugurated today, according to the Ports of Stockholm.

Värtahamnen has been under reconstruction since 2013.

This rebuilding scheme is part of the development of a completely new city district in Stockholm, the Stockholm Royal Seaport.

To free-up space for a new city district, the port area was redesigned: the pier was extended and part of the harbor basin was filled in. The result is a more efficient port area that extends further out into the bay.

Eleven million passengers pass through Ports of Stockholm every year. They contribute consumer spending of MSEK 5 000, fill the equivalent of seven hotels every day of the year and generate 4100 full-time jobs in the region,” said Karin Wanngård (S), Mayor of Stockholm.

“The ferry industry is important for Stockholm. It is exciting to see how Värtahamnen has developed and has contributed to the development of the Stockholm Royal Seaport.”

It has taken three years to build the new Värtahamnen port. The work has been carried out while the port continued to operate and has had high work environment and environmental targets.

There are only a few tasks remaining in the harbor basin before the entire project is completed at the turn of the year 2016/2017.
