VIDEO: Rauma Port Expansion in Full Swing

Port of Rauma has just released a video update about the progress made during 2016 on the port’s Container Terminal Extension Project.

In April 2016, Port of Rauma launched a major building project at the existing container terminal totaling over EUR21 million.

The development consists of expanding the current container terminal by building more berths for container ships and a new storage area for containers.

At the same time, the Port of Rauma entrance channel is being deepened from 10 meters to 12 meters.

WASA Dredging, a Finnish marine offshore and inland water construction company, is the principal contractor appointed for the channel deepening project.

“Thanks to the deeper channel and extended quays, the port will be able to accommodate larger vessels, whereby transport efficiency of the export and import industry is enhanced and transport emissions are reduced,” said Hannu Asumalahti, Managing Director of Port of Rauma Ltd.

“This will almost double the capacity of the container terminal and significantly improve the operational efficiency. Through these measures, the Port of Rauma responds to the development in global maritime markets, where larger vessel sizes and container freight are the dominant trend.”

This capital development project will be finished at the end of 2017, the Port said.
