Deeper fairways at the Port of Gothenburg.

The Port of Gothenburg is the only Swedish port that can receive the world’s largest oceangoing vessels and in doing so offer direct deep-sea services to other continents. Freight vessels are becoming larger and the fairways leading into the port need to be deepened by around four metres. The project has been entitled Skandia Gateway and is a joint project with the Swedish Transport Administration and the Swedish Maritime Administration.

In just 10 years the average container vessel has become 10 times larger. The limited depth in the fairway means that the largest vessels are currently unable to call at the Port of Gothenburg when fully loaded.

According to a study produced by the Swedish Transport Administration, the fairway needs to be deepened by around four metres if the draught is to be sufficient. The area that requires deepening is almost 5 kilometres long. In total, dredge spoils equivalent to the volume of 20 Globe Arenas will need to be excavated. A vital part of this initiative is the deepening and reinforcement of the quays to allow vessels with a large draught to load and discharge simultaneously and sustainably in the future.
