AMBITIOUS FUTURE PLANS

19. 03. 21

A brand new third RoRo-berth for ferries/RoPax/RoRo in Port of Karlshamn ferry terminal. This is a serious scenario in the ports plans for the near future. The new generation Ferry/RoPax/RoRo-vessels for the Baltic Sea with a length of up to 230 metres require longer and wider berths, ramps and deeper water.

- Decisions are not yet taken, but considering the long lead time for environmental permits for example, we have already started the application processes, says CEO Mats Olsson.

- In relation to this, we are also investigating the possibility to relocate the arrival/line-up area for lorries to our 30 hectar vast expansion area, south of the intermodal terminal. Presently pipes for the Nord Stream II project are stored there, but the area will be available later in 2019. This relocation will create new opportunities for development of the port area, says Mats Olsson.
