Peab has been commissioned to build a new container port adjacent to Tunadal Port in Sundsvall, Sweden.
The customer is SCA Logistics AB and the contract is worth SEK 249 million ($29.4 million).
“In order to meet the growing demand for paper pulp and sawn wood products a new container port will be built in Sundsvall. A new dock will also be built which entails massive groundwork and tonguing,” the company said.
To ensure that ships deeper than those currently entering the port can traffic the shipping lane, the harbor basin will be dredged.
“We look forward to further developing yet another part of Sundsvall Logistics Park by building the new container port together with SCA. We have a lot of great experience working together on big, complex projects like the nearby extensions of Östrand Paper Mill and the Tunadal Saw Mill,” said Jörgen Eriksson, Region Manager Peab.
The new container port will be adjacent to the new Sundsvall Logistics Park in Tunadal Port.
The logistics park will be a transportation hub where roads, the railroad and shipping come together to provide business with access to efficient and sustainable transportation to and from Sundsvall.
Construction will start later this year and is expected to be completed in the fall of 2023.
