Larger ships can now dock at the new bulk terminal at Prøvestenen

Dansk Natursten A/S has taken on a larger area in the bulk terminal

Operations at CMP’s new bulk terminal at Prøvestenen are steadily expanding, and Dansk Natursten A/S has recently taken on part of the area. The business supplies broken stones and other materials for the many building- and construction projects that are underway in the Copenhagen area.

”It is beneficial for us that we are now able to bring larger ships into the terminal that have the technology onboard to unload the broken stones. We need between 20 and 30,000 square metres, but we haven’t settled on that yet,” says Rene Gosvig, chief executive of Dansk Natursten A/S, which has had a smaller area at Prøvestenen for ten years.

On 29 July Dansk Natursten brought in the bulk carrier ”Yeoman Bridge”, which unloaded about 48,000 tonnes of broken stones from the Glensanda quarry in Scotland. With a DWT of 97,000 it is one of the largest ships ever to have visited one of CMP’s bulk terminals.

When the development is completed CMP’s bulk terminal at Prøvestene will comprise a total of 180,000 square metres.

CMP is expecting to receive the final environmental approval during the autumn so that it can carry out the last construction jobs to complete the terminal and lease the remaining areas.
