Asphalting and track-laying of central importance

From rough work to more 'refined' work – that's how the situation in Northern Harbour can be summarised. The major, heavy ground work is on its way to being finished.

"You could say that the degree of detail is increasing now we are starting on asphalting, line measurement, signage and other planning for future traffic flows," says Bengt-Olof Jansson, CMP's General Manager for Technology. In all, around 235,000 square metres are to be asphalted, and this work must be finished by the end of November.

Also, at the container terminal, rails are being laid for the new container crane – around 250 metres of rails, to be precise. The purchase of the crane itself was concluded over the summer, and by September next year it will be in place in Northern Harbour.

Capacity can be expanded
Tracks are also of central importance at the combi-terminal, where goods must be loaded on and off the railway linking it to Northern Harbour. Two different rail systems are to be constructed in the first phase, and here the entire train set can be loaded and unloaded. At the third terminal - where the RoRo ferries will dock – vehicle ramps are to be delivered in the next few weeks. These are being constructed in China, and once they are on site in Malmö the work of installing them will begin. This is expected to take a few months.

"At this terminal we can deal with both grey and black water from the ferries," Bengt-Olof adds. "This wastewater goes straight into the water and sewerage system in Northern Harbour, thereby reducing the environmental impact of port activities."
