Port of Kapellskär modernised

The Ports of Stockholm's harbour has completed a three-year lasting project, reaching five modern quay-berths and larger port area, enabling to receive larger volumes and ships. 

The reconstructed facility consists of 200 thou. m2 of logistics area, an entirely new pier with two quay-berths, a renovated pier with two quay-berths and a reconstructed quay-berth. There is also a new pilot harbour adjacent to the south end of the port.

The electricity, water and waste management utilities have also been modernised.

"The Port of Kapellskär is extremely important for trade along the East-West axis and for sustainable transport in the rapidly growing Stockholm region. Measured in length, more than three million meters-worth of goods are transported through the port annually. In addition, almost one million passengers pass through the port each year. Now finally the prerequisites are in place for traffic to grow even more," Stefan Hansson, Chair of the Board at Port of Stockholm, said.

Peter Lundman, Technical Operations Manager at the Port of Kapellskär, said; "This has been long-awaited. Both the traffic through the port and the vessel service traffic has expanded enormously at the Port of Kapellskär and there has been a great demand to expand capacity. Now we have modern facilities that can efficiently handle vessels, cargo and passengers."

Ulrika Falk, Chair of the Municipal Board, Municipality of Norrtälje, added; "The fact that we now have a modern, large capacity port for the upcoming 100 years is also very important for the development of the Municipality of Norrtälje. Sustainable transport is extremely important for the growing Stockholm region and shipping is an important piece of the jigsaw."
