New terminal construction underway
Monday, November 12, 2018, Gothenburg, Sweden

After years of planning and preparation, construction of an entirely new terminal in the outer area of the Port of Gothenburg has started. The project will be the largest expansion undertaking at the Port of Gothenburg in 40 years… …The 220,000 square metre terminal will be constructed using dredge spoils contained by an embankment, and is scheduled for completion around 2025…

…Following successful trials, the construction of the terminal is now ready to commence. An embanked area will be created at Arendal Bay, which will then be filled with materials. Before this can be done, the bed within the blasted rock embankment needs to be stabilised with the aid of piles.

Stage I involves piling from the seabed down to the rock, under the envisaged embanked area. The embankment will be built using blasted rock and sand.

Fact file: New terminal
Where? On the Hisingen side of the Göta Älv estuary, between the Älvsborg Harbour and the Arendal Harbour.
When? Piling and blasting has commenced. The terminal will be completed in 2025.
How? Built using dredge spoils placed in an embanked area in the Arendal Bay.
Why? To handle the long-term growth in freight volumes.
