Denmark unveils plans for new Container Terminal to be completed by 2023

Copenhagen Malmo Port (CMP) along with their new partners By & Havan on Wednesday, announced their plans to build a new container terminal in Ydre Nordhavn, Denmark, according to FleetMon.

It stated: “The planned terminal will be complete by 2023 and has an estimated budget of $130M.

“By & Havan is to undertake the construction of this new container terminal by rebuilding the fully functional container terminal in Levantkaj, Nordhavn by shifting it to Ydre Nordhavn. The new container terminal will be 165,000 sq. meter large, and 2.5m deeper than the existing terminal with two new c cranes, and a quay length of 550m.

“The decision comes after CMP recorded a remarkable loss during the pandemic despite the existing container terminal in Levantkaj, Copenhagen remaining fully operational for the majority of the year.”

Barbara Scheel Agersnap, CEO of CMP in her statement expressed strong belief in the project as she said, “This ensures that Copenhagen retains the basis for its important container traffic, and a large workplace remains in the city.”

The relocation of the container terminal further prioritizes the urban and sustainable development of Ydre.

The terminal will be a part of a 1 sq. km land refill which will also accommodate a nature park.

The design of the container terminal also incorporates free space for the expansion of the terminal in the future along with ramped infrastructure and space for logistics facilities and operations with an increase in freight volumes.

The project also aligns with the aim of the European Union to cut down emissions rates from such industrial activities. The location of the terminal along with the tunnel under Svanemølle Bay, expected to be ready by 2027, provides faster accessibility with shorter routes hence reducing congestion on roadways.

The project has also been given approval based on the Environmental Impact Assessment prepared earlier by the partners.

The new container terminal plan promises potential growth in business and sustainable development to the Nordhavn region of Copenhagen.
