Port of Kapellskar has just announced that they are ready to launch operations at all of its five quay-berths following expansion works.
The Swedish port has been expanded and now has two piers and a total of five modern quay-berths.
The new 245 meter-long pier has been in operation since summer 2016. The original pier has been extensively renovated and is now ready for traffic, the announcement said.
“An important milestone has been reached now that we have all of our five modern quay-berths in operation,” said Peter Lundman, Technical Operations Manager at the Port of Kapellskar.
Under this development scheme, the dredging work has been completed, the concrete has been repaired and the pier has been equipped with erosion protection, fenders, bollards, safety barriers and new lighting.
The official opening of the new Port of Kapellskar will take place in early summer 2017.
