Ports of Stockholm is building a new port for rolling goods and container traffic, Stockholm Norvik Port. This new port will be 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 to this site; Liebherr HS885 HD and HS895 HD. 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:
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.
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. This new 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.
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.
