PVE at Stockholm Norvik Port

Ports of Stockholm is building a new port for rolling goods and container traffic, Stockholm Norvik Port. The Stockholm Norvik Port port is the Baltic Sea freight port of the future.

This project is the biggest construction project in Sweden at this moment.

PVE Crane Rental BV supplied 2 units of heavy duty crawler cranes, models Liebherr HS885 HD and HS895 HD to this site, both used for dynamic compaction works.

The Liebherr HS895 HD started the job in March this year, the Liebherr HS885 HD in June. The dynamic compaction works are foreseen till the end of October this year.

Stockholm Norvik Port is needed for several reasons:

  1. Stockholm is growing

The Stockholm Norvik Port will ensure the efficient supply of goods to the Stockholm region, one of Europe’s fastest growing capital cities. With this type of growth, long-term investment in a well functioning infrastructure is essential and the port is an important part of this development.

  1. Ships are getting bigger

Container ship volumes and the volumes of ships carrying rolling goods are increasing. The shipping companies are consequently building increasingly larger vessels, which is both environmentally and economically advantageous. The Stockholm Norvik Port will meet the needs of modern ships for deeper draughts, longer quays, larger terminal areas and short and easy approach lanes from the larger fairways.

  1. A modern port benefits the environment

Stockholm Norvik Port complies with the EU ambition to increase the proportion of sea transport in relation to the total amount of transported goods. A new and modern port with direct motorway and railway connections, built using state-of-the-art technologies, is an efficient and sustainable transport solution.
