Take an aerial tour of Stockholm Norvik Port!

Using drones gives everyone the opportunity to view the construction work and see how Sweden’s newest freight port, Stockholm Norvik Port, is taking shape. Completion is on schedule for opening as planned in May 2020.
Drones have been a great asset in helping to keep track of the many different work tasks at Stockholm Norvik Port and in monitoring progress of the project in inaccessible areas. They also provide the possibility for anybody to take an aerial tour of the freight port, which opens in 2020.
“The film tour begins at the Nynäsbanan railway line, where Ports of Stockholm is constructing a four kilometre-long industrial branch line to run to the new port. The tour continues in over the port esplanade, over the container quay, and then continues towards the RoRo port,” explains Stockholm Norvik Port Project Manager, Magnus Sjöberg.
Stockholm Norvik Port will open in May 2020, when it will be ready to welcome vessels, trains, and haulage vehicles. The container port will be operated by Hutchison Ports, while the RoRo port will be run by Ports of Stockholm.

Completion of the container quay means a major milestone has been achieved at Stockholm Norvik Port

Construction of the 450-metre container quay has been completed at Stockholm Norvik Port. This means that a major milestone has been achieved in the unique construction of Sweden's new freight port.
The contours of Stockholm Norvik Port can now be seen, and the new functionality is emerging. Construction of the container quay is completed and out on the quay crane tracks are being laid, bollards are being fitted and guardrails, barriers and fenders are being installed.
“With less than a year to go before opening, the work to complete Stockholm Norvik Port is happening incredibly rapidly. If you want to see this unique construction before it is ready you will have to be quick,” says Magnus Sjöberg, Project Manager at Ports of Stockholm.
Stockholm Norvik Port is Sweden’s newest freight port, with both a RoRo port and a container terminal. The container terminal has a natural depth of 16.5 meters and the length of quay and terminal area needed to be able to handle the largest vessels operating in the Baltic Sea. The location of the port, with its short approaches from the fairways, good connections to major roads and rail connections, and its proximity to one of Europe’s most rapidly growing capital regions, make Stockholm Norvik Port a new, efficient and sustainable transport hub.
“There is a lot of work going on simultaneously in the construction of Stockholm Norvik Port. The rail track is being laid and surface water management facilities are being constructed, but for those of us working with shipping the completion of the container quay is an incredibly important milestone,” says Johan Wallén, Marketing and Sales Director at Ports of Stockholm.
