Construction of the brand-new terminal at the Port of Gothenburg got under way in autumn 2018. Phase one of the construction began with stabilisation work. This involved the sinking of 1,500 piles into the seabed, down to bedrock level, in the lead-up to construction of the rock embankments around the Arendal bay.
“It is extremely exciting to finally get off the mark in the biggest development project at the port since the 1970s,” said Magnus Kårestedt, Gothenburg Port Authority chief executive, prior to commencement of phase one last autumn. “The terminal is a crucial aspect of the port's long-term expansion plans and will further strengthen Gothenburg as the Nordic logistics capital.”
Phase one completed
The main work that was scheduled to take place during phase one was completed in late April. This consisted largely of piling and embankment work and marked the conclusion of the water-based part of the construction.
