Twice as much space for dry bulk at Copenhagen

Keen interest in renting space at CMP’s new reclaimed site at Prøvestenen

“This is a milestone for CMP,” says Brian Kristensen, COO Oil & Bulk, CMP.

Brian has great expectations for the new area, which covers 180,000 m² and will open in 2012, doubling CMP’s dry bulk area at the harbour in Copenhagen.

“It is important for us that new tenants to the area all conduct maritime-related activities and load and unload from the quayside rather than just transport goods in and out by lorry. The area has a 650-metre quay facility with a water depth of up to 13.5 metres, which enables ships with a greater draught to dock there than at the other dry bulk facilities. We want to be able to attract bulk carriers of a larger tonnage than is the case today.”

The area, which has been reclaimed on the south side of Prøvestenen, will be rented out to customers requiring space for storage of dry bulk or oil products. The area has been developed by By & Havn, an urban development corporation, in conjunction with City of Copenhagen, which is responsible for handing over the development to CMP.

“The last half metre of the surface is being given a coating of granite chips, after which CMP will develop the site, adding roads, cabling, lighting and drainage,” concludes Brian.
