Port of Kapellskar Completes Expansion Project

The Port of Kapellskar, part of the Ports of Stockholm Group, has completed a three year port refurbishment and expansion project.

In order to celebrate the completion of the project, the port recently organized the inauguration ceremony for the five new modern quay-berths and new port area.

The reconstructed port consists of 200 000 square meters of logistics area, an entirely new pier with two quay-berths, a newly renovated pier with two quay-berths and a reconstructed quay-berth.

Following the reconstruction work the Port of Kapellskar now has five modern quay-berths. There is also a new pilot harbor adjacent to the south end of the port.

This has been long-awaited. Both the traffic through the port and the vessel service traffic has expanded enormously at the Port of Kapellskar and there has been a great demand to expand capacity. Now we have modern facilities that can efficiently handle vessels, cargo and passengers,” says Peter Lundman, Technical Operations Manager at the Port of Kapellskar.
