VIDEO: Gothenburg Port New Terminal

Construction of the Gothenburg Port new terminal – located west of the current ro-ro facility at Arendal – is set to begin this summer.

The new terminal, to be equipped for both ro-ro and container vessels, will cover 220,000 square meters and will be built by using dredge spoils from the Göta Älv river.

According to the port, this method has already been tested in the laboratory and the large-scale field trials are now underway using dredging spoils taken from the area around the Göta Älv Bridge.

The field trials include testing two different combinations of materials. The first involves mixing the spoils with cement and slag, and the other involves mixed the spoils with cement, slag and fly ash – a considerably cheaper and eco-friendlier alternative.

The port reported that the new terminal will be fully operational in 2024 with parts of it coming into the use already in 2020.
