Ports of Stockholm Ltd's (SHAB) Port of Kapellskär is important for trade with Finland, Åland and the Baltic States.
With a new pier, larger logistics area and modernised port facilities, says SHAB, the port is now ready to welcome the vessels of the future.
A three year port refurbishment and expansion project has now been completed, on time and within budget (SEK80M).
“The Port of Kapellskär is extremely important for trade along the East-West axis and for sustainable transport in the rapidly growing Stockholm region," said Stefan Hansson, SHAB's Chairman. "Measured in length, more than 3M metres-worth of goods are transported through the port annually. In addition, almost 1M passengers pass through the port each year."
The reconstructed port consists of 200 000 m2 of logistics area, with new and reconstructed berths, giving the port five berths. A new harbour pilot station is adjacent to the south end of the port.
Electricity, water and waste management utilities at the port of Kapellskär have also been modernised.
